This article is a stub. You can help the LDraw.org Wiki Wiki by expanding it.


LGEO is a library of LEGO parts modeled by POV-Ray primitives.

When exporting LDraw parts to POV-Ray format, tools like LDView can use an XML file, usually named LGEO.xml, to substitute dedicated parts by their LGEO implementations. The older tool L3P uses the two files lg_elements.lst and lg_colors.lst to accomplish much the same thing, as well as to indicate whether to switch over to using Anton Raves' POV-Ray parts instead.

Starting from the original library by Lutz Uhlmann, many people edited and added parts to it. This sadly has led to a tree of variations, not a single collection. This tree is shown here:

LGEO by Lutz Uhlmann *
┃ ┣━Copy 1*
┃ ┣━archive.org version of Copy 1 as of 2012-03-20
┃ ┗━Copy 2
┃ ┗━GitHub repository (up to date?)
┣━━━ LGEO update by Owen Burgoyne (already included with AIOI, no need to download again)
┣━━━ LGEO update by Lars C. Hassing (possibly outdated)
┣━━━ LGEO update by Damien Roux
┗━━━ does anybody know more variants? please add them here

* = site seems to be offline
= Lars' "updated" parts seem to be actually older than the ones included with the AIOI. It may be that you shouldn't use them.
