QuickScale is the easy, simple and accurate way to take measurements from 2D drawings on your PC.

QuickScale takes line, path and area measurements from PDF drawings. Use an accurate measurement to scale the drawing.  If there are no measurements on the drawing, any known measurement like a door width or parking space can be used.

To measure an area, click on the Area button on the toolbar then click around the points and corners of the area.  Similarly to measure a distance, click on the Line or Path button and click on the points and corners of the measurement.

Dimensions are exported to a spreadsheet where they can be edited. The drawing can be printed to scale on any size printer from A4 to A1 plotters.

Drawings are often emailed in PDF format, without any scale, or not to scale. As long as you have one accurate measurement, you will be able to scale and measure from the PDF.

There are 3 editions of QuickScale - the Plus edition will also count items, add notes and text to the pdf and add in a room height to calculate the room volume.

There is a free viewer for QuickScale customers to send their clients, site or colleagues so they can view and print measured drawings.

Easily convert from metric to imperial.
