The Podcast Roundup – Episode 086 – Aug. 25th – Aug. 31st, 2019.

The BIMsider’s favourite Podcasts, Vodcasts and Videos from the world of AEC and BIM – for the week of Aug. 25th – Aug. 31st, 2019.

I’m going to start this week’s Podcast roundup off with another new episode of Prove It from the Proving Ground YouTube Channel

Prove It – Episode 7 – Back to School with Shelby Doyle


2) Podcast – From the AEC Business Podcast

Simulation on the Web with SimScale – an Interview with David Heiny

Summary from the Podcast website:

“Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation requires extensive computational power. Cloud-based services allow architects and engineers to do simulations without investing in high-end hardware. In this podcast interview, David Heiny, the CEO and Co-Founder of SimScale, explains how AEC firms can run simulations in a web browser.”

3) Playlist – From The BIM Coordinator YouTube Channel

BIM Manager Tips

Summary from the YouTube Channel:

“This will be an ongoing series of tips and tricks learned during the day to day work that will hopefully be helpful to fellow BIM Managers”

4) Podcast – From the AEM Thinking Forward Podcast


Summary from the Podcast website:

“Statistics show that up to 90 percent of construction job site accidents are caused by unsafe behavior, not conditions. However, according to Justin Ganschow of Caterpillar Safety Services, worksite rookies and veterans alike can benefit from learning critical safety lessons in a controlled, virtual reality (VR) environment.

In this episode, Ganschow takes AEM inside the Cat® Safety VR program, including a memorable hands-on demo, and explains the lessons that other equipment manufacturers can take away from the program’s success—like why workers who are trained on VR systems are more likely to remember their training than those who learn in a traditional classroom setting.”

5) Video – From the Parallax Team YouTube Channel

Prlx Apps- Tabbed Views +

Summary from the YouTube Channel:

“This video demonstrates the Parallax add-in to make your view tabs way more awesome in Revit 2019 and 2020.”


6) Podcast – From The IoT Podcast

Episode 231: What to do with Wi-Fi 6 and voice in the enterprise

Summary from the Podcast website:

“What is Wi-Fi 6? Should you care? We tackle these questions first up in this week’s podcast. From there, Kevin and I discuss the Bluetooth KNOB vulnerability and our fears of how smart home data could affect a Chinese-style social credit score. To lighten things up I talk about my visit with Microsoft, and experience with the Hololens 2 as well as Microsoft’s digital twin strategy. In the news segments, we cover the new Eero security service, the Nest doorbell package detection, and Fitbit’s proposed health service. We then answer a listener question about smart spigots.”

7) Video – From the SF Computational Design Institute YouTube Channel

SFCDI August 2019 | Autodesk Forge and Imeve 360° Remote Presence

Summary from the YouTube Channel:

“On August 30th, 12:00 pm PDT, SFCDI will celebrate its four-year anniversary with presentations on Autodesk’s Forge cloud platform and Imeve’s new AVATOUR offering for realtime remote presence with VR. Lunch will be sponsored by Autodesk, and the meeting will be hosted by the SF AIA, 130 Sutter St #600, San Francisco, CA 94104.”

8) Podcast – From The ConTechCrew Podcast

The ConTechCrew 184: Social Networking for the Field with David Broomhead of Trade Hounds

Summary from the Podcast website:

“This week’s construction tech news with Jeff Sample (@IronmanofIT), and Josh Bone (@BIM2theBone)

– Interview with David Broomhead from Trade Hounds (@TradeHounds)
– Construction Tech News of the Week “

9) Video – From Sean Fruin’s YouTube Channel

QAQC Valve Over Hard Ceilings

Summary from the YouTube Channel:

“In larger models, finding critical issues is a lot like playing a game of Where’s Waldo. Both Dynamo and Revit can be a huge help here and, in this video, we will show how we can use Dynamo geometry and logic to find hard-to-access piping valves hidden above a hard ceiling and create a color-coded Revit schedule to identify and fix them before they turn into costly RFI.”

Until next week
