    Re: Triangles rendering speed

    It depends if your cylinder is going to be drawn many times whitout parameters (size, height, radius) changing, if so create a display list or vertex array with your cylinder then draw it with the appropriate function. Else call gluCylinder but I doubt this function is quick.

    Hope it helps,
    Arath
