What is “iScaf”?

“iScaf 6” is our latest software which will enable you to draw Plan, Elevation, and 3D Drawings of your scaffold. The required components are counted for you – quickly and automatically. It can be integrated with the other iRent modules.

Is it easy to use?

Yes. Version 6 now provides access to the best of both worlds. In addition to the standard menu controls, it makes available the latest interface, including a new ribbon menu. This gives you access to all the controls necessary for drawing scaffold; even more quickly and easily than before. No matter whether you are a scaffold expert (with limited computer experience) or a CAD expert (with many of your own custom templates and blocks), our software is there to provide the power at your fingertips.

How does it work?

Behind the scenes, iScaf uses the powerful AutoCAD drawing engine to draw and estimate scaffold. Our product can still be used effectively by all users, though, even those without any CAD knowledge.

Due to a bulk licensing agreement, we are now able to offer an even more affordable pricing structure. There is no need to purchase AutoCAD or any additional CAD software to use the iScaf product.

What Scaffold Systems does iScaf support?

iScaf can handle a number of scaffold systems such as Ringlock, Layher, Cuplock, Kwikstage and Frame.

“iScaf” Features

“iScaf” allows you to provide detailed Plan, Elevation and 3D colour drawings with your estimates and quotes. The output is perfect for scaffolders on-site, providing them with the assurance that they know exactly what is required to build. It is also a perfect demonstration tool, allowing you to show your clients just what you can do for them.

“iScaf” allows you to scaffold using an architectural drawing of any structure you choose. Import the image in PDF or scanned format and trace around the outline.

Drawing Presentation

Print your full design on any standard size paper, with your choice of: company logo; additional text and extra information about your company.

Our product also allows you to easily scale drawings using 1:100, 1:200 or any other ratio you may prefer. By presenting your drawing in this way, “iScaf” allows you, your clients, and your scaffolders to clearly understand what is required when it’s time to actually build the scaffold on site.

Sectional Scaffolding

Some other products used for creating scaffolding includes functions for creating three dimensional representations of a scaffolding design. “iScaf” is no exception in this regard. It not only generates professional 3D drawings but also goes the extra distance of allowing you to produce sectional/elevation constructions These offer the advantage of providing an unimpeded view of the standards (verticals) layout and can be customised to include your own company title block.

Real-world Applications

iScaf is used extensively in the field with THOUSANDS of drawings delivered every week by our clients in practical real world situations. While other systems may grind to a halt with more than 50 scaffold bays, iScaf can handle extremely large real world commercial projects and complex designs which can be edited as requirements and conditions may change on site. iScaf is only limited by your own creativity.

  • include your own company logo with additional text and company information
  • print a full ACCURATE material list with your prices and weights.
  • Automatically allocate to Pallet, Racks, Stillage, Cages or Wire bins.

“iScaf” Supports many types of modular or frame scaffold systems and can also be customised to suit special needs.

Why is the iScaf generated material list so accurate?

What you see is what you get. Every single component is counted based on the scaffold that you use. With our experience in the industry, we know how most scaffold systems are constructed. All the different dimensions for the ladder towers and stair units are built the way you would build them right down to the stair stringers, stair treads, platforms, trap doors, landings and handrails.

We also understand that every scaffold business does things a little differently to their neighbour, so please talk to us about your specific needs.

License Control:

Please note that since January 2014, all our products use an activation system for license control. We no longer use the dongle or hardware lock type system. This has been very well received and we will continue this approach. If your business still uses the old hardware lock system, we will still provide support but we recommend that you upgrade.
