For most of us (me included), LDU's are a sufficiently good enough basis to use when model things. Scrubs wanted greater accuracy. If I manage to find the article where I read this, I will post a link.



Not that I doubt this explanation, but would it actually be necessary to devise a whole new standard just for better accuracy? It seems like that info could be added to a file in the same way that other kinds of metadata are, like snapping info. In fact, I imagine it being a feature of a hypothetical LDraw 2.0—precise physical dimensions coded into parts, so as to allow more accurate and consistent rendering of seams between bricks, for example.
