Welcome toQuickscale

the best pdf management software 2017

QuickScale is for taking measurements and areas off PDF and DWG drawings. All you need is the scale of the drawing and/or one reference measurement. Calibrate the PDF by clicking on either end of a known measurement and type in the distance, this will scale the drawing. From then on, click on the points and corners of the areas and dimensions to calculate them.

QuickScale is the UK's leading take off software, designed to be simple to use and competitively priced.

QuickScale is available as a desktop licence, downloaded onto a Windows pc, or on a USB stick.

Some anti-virus programs are reporting one or more parts of QuickScale as either a trojan or a virus. QuickScale is NOT a virus/trojan - any warning you may get when you install/run QuickScale - providing you downloaded QuickScale from our website - is a false-positive.  See our Blog page for more information.


You must keep track of your keycode and keep it handy for updates or errors.  From 1.1.22 there will be a £15 fee to have your keycode resent to you. To find the keycode, either look at the licence email you receive when you purchase, or open QuickScale and click on the View tab then About and you will see the keycode there.
