Scaffold Counter by Avontus

Scaffold Counter by Avontus


Digitally signed app




The design and counting of materials (especially scaffolding) can be a time-consuming, tedious process. This free app from Avontus assists in the rapid creation of complex 3D scaffolding models and virtually eliminates the counting process by providing a bill of materials with a single button click.


The sample files on the ribbon contain all of the data necessary to draw the most common scaffold equipment, but you can also easily add any missing components or component lengths.


The resulting bill of materials has several reports and pie charts that you can print, email, and export to Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, PDF, and Avontus Quantify for estimating and inventory control.

Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).

    App is very good but a little confusing at the start (for me) but you'll get it for awhile. Make things a lot easier in counting the materials and stuffs. 5 out 5 star for you Avontus Software

    На практике отработал и подтверждаю работоспособность этого приложения. Есть некоторые шероховатости но видимо они не столь критичны ведь вещь сделана с душой.

  • Awesome tool
    Adrian Najmi | January 13, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It's really important to have accurate scaffolding models especially working for power plants and oil and gas industries. This plug-in is really flexible and has helped me to quickly draw scaffold models around piping structures and and other plant equipment. Nice work.

    Jack Bruce | December 02, 2014

    Short learning curve on this. Great block library creates 3dmodels and BOM real quick. I was able to make a scaff model and BOM that i could use in the real world fast and easy.

  • Saves me so much time
    Sara Taylor | November 26, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I wish I had found this sooner. It saves me a tom of time that I used to spend counting parts. Added reports are great. Very helpful tool.

  • Great plug-in
    JD Taylor | November 26, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I've been mostly using 2D for drawing scaffodl but thought I'd give this a try. Once I got used to the cube thingy, software is great. Love that I can get a count right away.
