In the commonly used 3D packages like 3ds Max and Maya, you can also set up a custom grid to these dimensions. The result is that the models, textures, and world space are all built on a standard grid, giving the developer consistent units and sizes. A simple example would be the creation of an object for a game decoration, such as a doorway arch. If the texture artist creates a texture for the arch that is 512  1024 and the modeler makes the model of the arch on a grid and creates the arch model 512  1024, the image will fit perfectly over it.
