A Planmate SCALEMASTER or SCALEX digital plan wheel measurer for construction drawings, building plans and blueprints makes it easy to perform linear, area and volume takeoffs with speed, accuracy and confidence when estimating, bidding or planning. Some models can be connected to a PC using an optional USB cable and data transfer software The rolled values can be transferred directly into commonly used spreadsheets like Excell or estimating programs, saving time and reducing the potential for costly transcribing errors.
Estimating software Tool
Below is an overview of estimating software options which can be used in combination with a scale pen:
Up to 91 built-in scales help you measure plans, blueprints, and maps for maximum versatility in architectural, engineering and civil/map scaling. Save up to 10 custom scales for calibrating out-of-scale plans and plan books. You can easily store a new scale permanently into the device for future use.
A wireless kit or USB PC Interface cable (sold separately) lets you transfer rolled values from the plan wheel directly into commonly used spreadsheets like Excel or any windows based estimating program, saving countless keystrokes, saving time and reducing the potential for costly transcribing errors.
For: Contractors, estimators, engineers, landscapers, excavators, electrical contractors, HVAC, fencing specialists, pavers or anyone needing fast, accurate takeoffs from plans and blueprints.
