Bend-Tech EZ is designed for hobbyists who have only a few parts they need to manufacture. There is just a couple of minutes learning curve on this software. It is 2D in nature so all of your parts must lay flat on the ground when you are done bending. If you have parts that require rotation besides 180 degrees, then Bend-Tech EZ-3D or Bend-Tech PRO are available for customer consideration. Bend-Tech EZ includes 3 simple designers; the template designer, custom part and 2d Sketch. Define your materials in the material library, select the dies for your JD2 bender and create a part in seconds. Bend-Tech EZ will provide your cut length, bend locations and bend angles; making it quick and easy to create quality parts with your JD2 bender.
Bend-Tech EZ's template designer has dozens of pre-defined shapes often used in tube or pipe bending projects. Select the template that represents the part you want to make and fill in the desired values into the template's dimension fields.
Custom Part Designer:
Bend-Tech EZ's custom part designer takes the user-entered lengths and bend angles to define the part.As with all of the designers, the needed fabrication information is instantly available to cut and bend the tube.
2D Sketch Designer:
The 2D sketch designer allows a user to sketch out the shape of the tube. When the sketch is complete, they use the entry panel and provide the numbers for the lengths and angles of the tube.
Die libraries for JD2 benders are built into the Bend-Tech software. If a customer finds their tube or pipe bending specifications a little different from our defaults, a simple wizard can be used to walk them through a calibrating process to find the stretch growth and the true bending performance from the customer's die. Bend-Tech will show your part's cut length,bend locations, rotations (0 or 180 degrees with 2D parts) and bend angles. Simply pull a tape measure from one end of the tube and the bending instructions will give you the locations to mark for each bend.
