Hi,
  I'm having a problem with loading the x,y,z vertices the problem is, is that I get the vertices loaded which resemble a Cube but I keep getting a vertice in the middle of the cube that shouldnt be their ?

I would of tried to show this in a image but cant figure out how to load the image?

Double posting is not your friend Sad

But there should be an attach option when writing a post that should let you put images up.  They might have to be png or jpg's

Hi,
  I figured out the problem the cube requires 8 vertice where I was putting in the length of the array this does work but interestingly puts a vertice in the middle of the cube, and also interestingly if you don't create any  x, y or z coordinates it will create a vertice in the middle without any coordinates as long as you have a number in the vertice in the glDrawArrays.

1  
gl.glDrawArrays( GL2.GL_POINTS, 0, 1 );


Wrong
1  
 gl.glDrawArrays( GL2.GL_POINTS, 0, pointsf.length );


Right
1  
gl.glDrawArrays( GL2.GL_POINTS, 0, 8 );

OpenGL is a state machine, including its current vertex position.  By default this is at (0, 0, 0) so if you just call glDrawArrays(GL_POINTS, 0, 1) you'll render a point at that position.

Instead of using pointsf.length, you want to divide by 3 since it's asking for the number of vertices, not array elements to use.

With the change to glDrawArrays, did your problem go away?
