Scaffolding is a block used when building structures to help the player reach higher places, or safely go downwards without taking fall damage.

Obtaining[edit]

Scaffolding can be mined with any tool, but swords and axes mine it the fastest.

Usage[edit]

A stack of scaffolding created by only tapping on the top face of the bottom scaffolding block.

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.

A diagram showing that scaffolding can only be placed 4 blocks away from the base of support.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

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.

Fuel[edit]

Scaffolding can be used as a fuel in furnaces, and will smelt 0.25 items.
