How do you measure your PDF drawings?

QuickScale is the fast, easy and accurate way to measure PDF drawings on your PC.

QuickScale calculates line, path and area measurements on PDF drawings by using an accurate measurement to scale the drawing.  If there are no measurements on the drawing, use any known measurement like a door width or parking space.

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 can be sent to a spreadsheet. The measured PDF 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 basic Lite edition will measure the pdf.  Standard will measure, print and export dimensions.  Plus will measure, print, export as well as count items, add notes and text to the pdf, add in a room height to calculate the room volume and add measurements together.

There is a free viewer for QuickScale customers to send their clients, site or colleagues so they can view and print measured drawings. There is no time limit or cost for the viewer.

You can try QuickScale for FREE for 30 days. Visit: for your no obligation, 30 day trial.
