Which variables do you need to keep track of for each triangle? ). Try drawing with GL_LINE_STRIP or GL_LINES or GL_POINTS instead of triangles. Does it put the lines where you expect? How big are the points by default? Try changing the background colour by using glClearColor () before the rendering loop. 0f. Try creating a second VAO, and drawing 2 shapes (remember to bind the second VAO before drawing again).
