Former LEGO ambassador and LEGO zealot as a whole. If I could give negative rep for people writing "Legos", I would. It's going to be very hard not to suspend any offender though.

comment Is there an .lxf file resource of production Lego sets?
There's also an article on the LDraw site on how files represeting official models should be created which hints at a repository, but doesn't link to it...

comment How are LEGO sets designed?
I have some doubts about the gluing and scanning part, to be honest - as I understand, designers will indeed first make their model with actual bricks, going through several iterations depending on unknown factors (cost, target audience, marketing, whatever); but I believe they'll make a digital version of it (with what I suppose is some in-house software similar to an LDraw editor) when they hand it over for the next steps. That said, since Ulrik Pilegaard stopped working for LEGO in 2004, it's possible the method has changed and they did in fact work the way you say back then.

comment How should I create a Heroica scale graveyard or crypt room?
I only just realized that the first version isn't impossible to build any more, since there is a new version of the jumper plate which allows for a regular stud to be connected in the middle of the underside. Yay!

Receiving no response from the customer service seems unusal as these guys usually have an excellent track record of helping customers. You may want to try calling them directly using the free number for your country. Let them know that you never received a response to your two queries, this may give them the chance to fix what went wrong there.

And what is giving the error, the brick itself or the software? The more details, the (slightly) better chance you can get help.
