Scaffold 3D ModelThe key components of a scaffold are standards, ledgers, transoms and fittings. The standards (commonly referred to as uprights) are the vertical posts that transfer the load of the structure to the supporting level below or the ground where they connect to a base plate to spread the load evenly. The base plate is often part of an adjustable leg. Ledgers are the horizontal tubes which connect the standards together. Transoms (commonly referred to as trannies) rest on the ledgers and are perpendicular to the ledgers. Main transoms are placed close to the standards and they hold the standards in place. Main transoms also provide support for boards. Intermediate transoms are placed between the main transoms to provide additional support for the boards.

Wondering where to find someone who can design and 3D model a scaffold? You’ve arrived at the right place.

Simply send us a hand sketch or a description of what you’re after and we’ll work with you to arrive at an efficient professional scaffold design.

Why do you need a drawing or 3D model of your scaffold? A drawing and 3D model of your scaffold design is great to accompany a quote and will help your client gain a better picture of the scaffold you’re going to provide them with – It will help you stand out during the quoting process. Governing bodies and clients often need to review scaffold designs prior to any work starting. Having a drawing and some 3D model printouts can speed up the approval process because it’s much easier for people to understand how the scaffold will look.

Scaffold design in Australia must be in compliance with Australian Standards (AS1576-Scaffolding and AS4576-Guidelines for Scaffolding). The scaffold design must also comply with the Safe Work Australia Scaffolding Code of Practice ( and any state requirements. There is a list of state governing bodies below:
