At SMART Scaffolder we are constantly adding new features, making enhancements that our customers have requested and ensuring our software runs on the latest computers. Here are just some highlights from the 3 releases so far this year:
Enhanced import of satellite photos
BIM Toolbox has been enhanced to improve the quality of the satellite photos that you can import, this is especially useful for larger sites. The satellite import function now centres on the site more accurately. You can also edit the image within SMART Estimator so you can annotate it with text and drawings, for example to add directions.
Faster input of scaffolds via Schedule IT
Now you can input your scaffold in seconds using Schedule IT to produce an estimate, create a professional quote, generate drawings and automatically update your load list. There’s no need to model your structure as you can take a tender schedule and simply key in the dimensions.
- More control over lift heights
- Specify which lifts are boarded using the improved width column
- Schedule which lifts have hop-ups
- Set out gable ends
- Improved naming of independents for convenience and speed
- Edge protection guardrail scaffolds can now be longer
