Scaffolding is broken instantly, and no tools are required.
The placement of scaffolding is different from any other blocks in the game. When pressing use on the side of a scaffolding, the scaffolding will be added on top of the highest scaffolding in that location, allowing the player to build the scaffolding structure higher on the ground. Pressing use on the top face of the scaffolding will add the scaffolding to the side, depending on the direction the player is facing. While sneaking, pressing use on the top face of the scaffolding will place the new scaffolding on top of the targetted one, but if there's already a scaffolding there, then it will try to place it under the targetted scaffolding. Pressing use on the side while sneaking will place it on the side like placing other blocks.
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 and Bedrock editions only] or 4 blocks[PlayStation 4 Edition only] out from its base of support; any further scaffolding placed will fall down to the ground.
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]
When holding scaffolding, the hitbox of scaffolding in the world will be a full block. Otherwise, you can interact with other blocks through the scaffolding.
