PON CAD ® is a professional BIM scaffolding software which has been conceived to help to Design Scaffolding, Roofing, Shoring structures, Stages and Tribunes, in 3D CAD mode.

PON CAD offers a complete solution for the phases of:

  1. Costs estimation, B.O.M.  precise List of Materials.
  2. Creation of Technical Drawings, 3D assembling schemes and sections for work safety
  3. Structural Analysis for any scaffolding structures
  4. Stock management both in the warehouse and at the building site
  5. Preparation of winning cad presentations and commercial offers: Videos and Rendering

PON CAD does not have any limitation on design complexity: it is a versatile tool which is able to meet any user’s need and to comply with any law that regulates scaffolding projects for:

  1. Small and Large Buildings,
  2. Support Structures,
  3. Industrial Maintenance,
  4. Suspended Scaffolding,

pon cad scaffolding, how it works

How it works PON CAD Scaffolding Software

pon cad scaffolding on dwg plan
With PON CAD it is possible to design freely or starting from a 2D and 3D plan or from a conveniently elaborated image.

3d scaffolding modules preview
By tracing the perimeter, PON CAD creates volumetric modules that represent the scaffold. Every time it is possible to modify them, and to change the specifics.

pon cad sw scaffolding development
A simple command allows you to develop the scaffold in every detail. It is always possible to modify and integrate each article both with CAD commands and PON CAD commands.

pon cad calculation scaffolding list of material
PON CAD elaborates precise bills of material, divided into work phases with advantages for the preparation of estimates, the planning of the warehouse and transport. The lists are generated in TXT, Word, Excel (also Open Office), CSV and HTML.

The technical documentation can be created in a few clicks with the standard CAD commands or with the powerful automatic wizards.
You can define sections, views, and details for the assembling schemes.

pon cad ringlock multidirectional rendering
PON CAD supports different levels of graphical detail from the wireframe filiform to 3D solids with which it is possible to generate rendering and video presentation reports for commercial support.

pon cad software plugin

pon cad solutions standalone tool or plugin

PON CAD can be supplied together with BricsCAD as a single package.
This solution is called PON CAD SMART, which is a software package that does not require AutoCAD and combines high performance with an intuitive user interface.

For technical informations  please contact us

PON CAD can be supplied as a plug-in.
If you own a CAD, it will be convenient for you to buy PON CAD as a Plug-in at a lower price; in this case it is necessary to have AutoCAD installed (version 2012 or higher) or BricsCAD (version 15PRO or higher).

PON CAD is supplied as a CAD plug-in, this option allows you to hasten drawing procedures and preserve the working environment you are used to. PON CAD inserts an additional menu and many commands and shortcuts to your CAD which facilitate scaffold drawing, but at the same time you can always use standard CAD commands (import, layout creation, cooy, paste, move, etc.).
