Share and update drawings using Draw IT Link

The SMART Scaffolder Draw IT Link works in conjunction with SMART Estimator, enabling the automatic creation and export of a dxf file. This file contains an AutoCAD readable drawing for each scaffold item in the estimate. You can supply this drawing file to an engineer, potentially reducing the design time required and the need for a site visit reducing fees and turnaround times for your clients. With SMART Scaffolder Draw IT you can amend the imported drawing to add a title block, notes, dimensions, symbols, etc.

Design scaffold

Automatic drawing sheet sizes

AutoCAD uses the term ‘layout’ to describe a drawing sheet. SMART Scaffolder Draw IT automatically sets up five layouts in A0 to A4 paper sizes, helping you to get started quickly.

Scaffold design

Versatile drawings and annotations

Draw ‘real world’ objects, such as scaffolding in AutoCAD’s Model Space, then use Paper Space to add annotations such as a title area for your company logo and job details.

Versatile drawings

Drag and drop scaffolding components

The AutoCAD tool palette allows you to drag and drop scaffolding components onto the drawing. Tabbed pages display base plates, ladders, brick guards, sleeve couplers, hop up brackets, castors, etc.



Drag and drop

Draw using AutoCAD Layers

AutoCAD uses layers to make the drawing easier to view on screen. Each layer can be assigned a colour, a line style and given a name. SMART Scaffolder Draw IT provides a default set of layers, (e.g. base plate, beams, boards, brackets or brick guards).

Drawing with AutoCAD

Print and share your drawings

SMART Scaffolder Draw IT will print using black ink by default but can also print in colour. You can also output to DWF, DWG, DXF and PDF file formats to send electronically to customers with your quotations etc.

Print your scaffold

Import building plans and elevations

If you have existing plans of a building you can draw directly over them using SMART Scaffolder Draw IT which makes it simple to draw over the building using the Draw IT scaffold components, helping you to position your standards around obstructions and to place your lifts where required.

Import building plans

Get working your way

SMART Scaffolder Draw IT is automatically set up to produce drawings at a scale of 1:50. This means that you can get started straight away producing elevation drawings on common paper sizes, usually A2 to A4.
