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

LDraw models can be exported to the 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.
