Working with individuals from around the world, I sometimes get asked to define or clarify certain terms that are on blueprints or architects instructions from people outside the US working on a rendering for an architect or developer here in the States!
I thought it might be beneficial to start a thread with links to resources to help others look up what certain terms mean. I will just toss out a few for now and add to it.
