|Breaking time[note 1]|
- Times are for unenchanted tools in seconds.
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 (in Java Edition) or 4 blocks (in Bedrock Edition) 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 different block that is not a scaffolding block.
In Bedrock Edition, scaffolding cannot be placed inside lava; if scaffolding is placed next to lava or fire, the scaffolding will also be destroyed. In Java Edition, it can be placed inside lava, but scaffolding does burn after some time.
