|“||Scaffolding helps you reach the top of your builds with ease. Just keep stacking them as you go! It’s also handy for avoiding fall damage, as you can gently get your delicate body to the ground by lowering yourself through the scaffolding blocks, instead of just leaping off a cliff and hoping you land on a particularly soft Creeper (which never works btw). Plus you can build all kinds of great things out of scaffolding itself!||„|

Scaffolding can be mined instantly with any tool.
When the bottom block of scaffolding is destroyed, all scaffolding blocks above it will break, similar to chorus plants; this makes it easier for players to make temporary structures. Pressing use on the top face of a scaffolding block will place another scaffolding block on top of the stack.
Scaffolding has no collision detection. The player can climb up or down by jumping or sneaking respectively. A scaffolding block can be moved by pistons, allowing them to be broken easily.
Scaffolding can only be placed 6 blocks[Java Edition only] or 4 blocks[Bedrock and PlayStation 4 editions only] out from its base of support; any further scaffolding placed will fall down to the ground. Scaffolding also falls if placed on the side of a non-scaffolding block.
Scaffolding cannot be placed inside lava; if scaffolding is placed next to lava or fire, the scaffolding will also be destroyed. If it falls into lava or fire, it will also be destroyed immediately when it touches them.[Bedrock and PlayStation 4 editions only]
Scaffolding can be placed inside lava but burns after some time.[Java Edition only]
