In mathematics, a rod group is a three-dimensional line group whose point group is one of the axial crystallographic point groups. This constraint means that the point group must be the symmetry of some three-dimensional lattice.

Table of the 75 rod groups, organized by crystal system or lattice type, and by their point groups:

The double entries are for orientation variants of a group relative to the perpendicular-directions lattice.
