PON CAD: Professional software to Design and Estimate Scaffolding

PON CAD is a Professional software to Project, Design and Quote Scaffolding in a 3D CAD

The PON CAD is an easy and complete tool for professional scaffolding design, perfect for projecting and quoting any type of Scaffolding

PON CAD software to design, estimate and verify scaffold

PON CAD® is a powerful software for scaffolding professionals  to plan, design and quote of scaffolding.

PON CAD  is ideal to design any out of standard scaffolding, without any limitation in shape and arrangement .

Thanks to its great flexibility is an ideal application for the following sectors:  construction industry , industrial petrochemical and shipbuilding maintenance,  entertainment industry.

PON CAD Advantages 

  • Technical and building site design
  • Commercial documentation, specifications and a strong integration for structural testing and stock management
  • Our main strengths
  • Scaffold designing of every brand and model (eg. Layher, Kwikstage, Cuplock, Alustar, Catari, Marcegaglia, Condor, Pilosio, Ceta, Alfix, Carpedil, Edilponte, Goffi, etc.).
  • Base library/catalog of Scaffolding included in PON CAD:
    1. Multidirectional Layher type(cm 307-257-157…),
    2. Multidirectional (cm 300,250,180,…),
    3. type Kwikstage,
    4. Cuplock type A (cm 307-257-157… ),
    5. Cuplock type B (cm 300,250,180,150,…),
    6. Tube and Fitting (always included),
    7. American Frame,
    8. European Frame (cm 300, 250, 180…)

PON CAD allows  to design 3D simulations of any scaffolding, respecting all construction requirements to provide comprehensive support to  Sales, Hiring, Installation, Design and Structural Testing.

PON CAD is a plug-in for AutoCad (Autodesk©) o BricsCad (Bricsys©).

Draw any type of Scaffolding

PON CAD 3D Scaffold 2 PON CAD has no limits in the design of any scheme of scaffolding.
PON CAD allows to design any type of structure, from the most simple to very complex ones, such as domes and viaducts. PON CAD is a valuable aid for the designer and never restricts any possible solution or application.

For complicated structural detailing, the designer can intervene manually inserting all scaffold components using all the CAD commands; it is always possible to make any manual change. It is possible to design starting from existing plants, photos and prospects loaded with he CAD.

Why using AutoCAD dwg?

AutoCAD (or BricsCAD) offers a standard DWG CAD platform, a guarantee for investments and professional scaffolding design.

  • The scaffolding plan has no limitations in drawing.
  • DWG standard form for total sharing between designers, customers and other softwares as well.
  • More than 250 expressively defined additional CAD commands.
  • Always updated and state-of-the-art CAD software.

Scaffolding Design Regulations

PON CAD enables to respect the building legislation and regulations of every country: the designer applies the requirements during the design phases.
