glutWireTorus — Draw a wireframe torus.

Library

OpenGLUT - geometry

Synopsis

#include <openglut.h>

void
glutWireTorus(GLdouble dInnerRadius, GLdouble dOuterRadius, GLint nSides, GLint nRings);

Parameters


dInnerRadius


Radius of ``tube''


dOuterRadius


Radius of ``path''


nSides


Facets around ``tube''


nRings


Joints along ``path''

Description

This function effectively wraps a cylinder with


nSides


slats and bends it at


nRings


facets around a circular path, forming a torus, or ``donut''. The center is at the origin and the ``path'' rings around the z axis.

The torus parameters can be explored interactively with the OpenGLUT shapes demo.

Caveats


dInnerRadius


and


dOuterRadius


are


not


analogous to similar measurements of an anulus.
