PON CAD: Professional software to Design and Estimate Scaffolding

PON CAD Professional tool to Design, Project, Manage and Quote Scaffolding


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

PON CAD To design and manage Scaffolding

PON CAD® is a professional tool which helps designers to easily draw and manage scaffolding, stages, covers and stands. Setting no limitations on drawing schemes and complexity, PON CAD offers an integrated solution for the phases of:

  • Design
  • Costs estimation
  • Preparation of commercial offers and presentations
  • Material management both in the warehouse and at the building site
  • Creation of technical drawings and assembling schemes

This versatility derives from the choice of using the powerful CAD design engine and of adopting open standard formats (dwg) which ensures a complete integration with other softwares.
Thanks to its great flexibility is the ideal application for the following sectors: Construction industry, Industrial Petrochemical and Shipbuilding maintenance, Entertainment industry.

Plug-in or full package solution?

As flexible tool as it is, PON CAD suits any user’s needs. Two different solutions and two different configurations can be implemented depending on user’s assets and skills.

Plug-in solution for your CAD
This option inserts an additional tab and more than 200 new commands to your CAD; supported CADs are AutoCAD® (version 2009 or newer) or BricsCAD® (version 12PRO or newer).

Full package solution with double (inter)face
This option allow the user to choose between two interfaces:

  • PRO interface: closer to standard CAD one, this configuration is tailored for expert CAD users who are comfortable with various tabs and many buttons;
  • SMART interface: more intuitive, this configuration is tailored for less experienced users who may find easier to work with less buttons and tabs.

PON CAD interfaces: PRO and SMART

Does it pay for itself?

Yes: spare time with automatic Bills of Materials!
Yes: contain costs with integrated solutions!
Yes: get more commissions by being more efficient!

How does PON CAD work?

Open plan with PON CAD Open your plan
With PON CAD it is possible to draw starting from a plan or from a conveniently elaborated image.
PON CAD works in a dwg standard environment; supported CADs are AutoCAD and BricsCAD. All their commands can be used together with PON CAD ones.
Develop 2d modules with PON CAD Develop 2D modules
The designer can easily create volumetric modules that represent scaffolding encumbrance, by tracing the plan or the image, or by freely drawing.
After modules development, it is possible to move and rotate them, and to change their specifics (for instance height, starting point, scaffolding parameters, etc.).
Develop scaffolding with PON CAD Develop scaffolding
After finding the optimal solution, thanks to a simple command the designer can determine every feature of the scaffolding and develop it in the most detailed way.
After scaffolding development, it is possible to change and integrate any particular by using both original CAD commands and PON CAD commands.
Get a bill of Materials with PON CAD Bill of Materials
PON CAD creates precise bills of materials and provides accurate reports which are useful to manage warehouse, transportation and construction site.
Bills of materials are produced in open standard formats; this facilitates integration with other softwares.
Make a layout for scaffolding solution with PON CAD Layout
All technical records (general drafts, sections, assembling schemes) can be created in few clicks thanks to powerful commands.
It is possible to determine sections, views and details for assembling schemes.
Rendering example with PON CAD Rendering
PON CAD supports different levels of graphic detail. This allows to easily create commercial reports and presentations and facilitates commercial promotion and technical comprehension.
All above-mentioned features are saved in pure dwg; thus everything is available for more modifications with other softwares (BIM, rendering softwares).

Supported scaffolding types and brands

PON CAD is a parametric software that can design any type, brand and model of scaffolding. Concerning system of measurement, both imperial units (inches, feet) and metric ones (mm, cm) are supported.
MEC CAD has developed more than 30 library-catalogues for its Customers; PON CAD is always supplied with this generic libraries equipment:

  • Multidirectional Layher type(cm 307-257-157, …)
  • Multidirectional (cm 300,250,180,…)
  • Kwikstage type
  • Cuplock type A (cm 307-257-157, …)
  • Cuplock type B (cm 300,250,180,150, …)
  • Tube and Fitting (always included)
  • American Frame
  • European Frame (cm 300, 250, 180, …)
  • AT-PAC type
  • Plettac Contur type
  • More on request…

User may add other catalogue/libraries, already developed by MEC CAD for the main scaffolding manufacturers. The Customer can ask MEC CAD to develop new scaffolding libraries/databases on his behalf starting from technical drawings and relevant information.
