POV-Ray, short for Persistence of Vision Raytracer, is a ray tracing program that can be used to create realistic renders of LDraw models.

Different methods exist to use POV-Ray for this purpose:

  • LDraw models can be exported to POV-Ray format using LDView or L3P.
  • The LGEO library, created by Lutz Uhlmann, was created to ensure that rendered models looked even more realistic when rendered.
  • Also other such libraries exist.
