All industries now days seemed to be swamped with acronyms! For a start there is "BIM" (Building Information Modelling), but from that point we now have more arriving daily, not to mention the hundreds of different file extensions.

To help everyone get their heads around them we've started a simple glossary of terms, open to everyone here:

We aim to keep this up to date with the latest industry terms and file extensions. It's just another part of our on going education effort.
