In this paper, the automatic design method of scaffold was proposed. This method was programmed using web based PHP program under the safety standard and the designer's know-how. The size and the numerical quantity of the scaffold were calculated considering the relation between the scaffolding condition and the constructing structure. Three dimensional positions and the numbers of the individual scaffold materials were calculated and recorded in the data server simultaneously. Then, three dimensional structural drawings were made automatically using the AutoCAD with VBA by using the previously designed material positions. Therefore, 3D drawings were done automatically. From the proposed design method, the precise quantities of scaffold materials were obtained. Also, the drawing of the scaffold was done automatically without any laborious drawing by hands.
