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:
