Bend-Tech EZ: $69(+$10 shipping & download) Buy Now
Bend-Tech EZ is an entry level tube bending software for the home hobbyist. If your parts are simple 2D Round Tube parts only, (parts that lay flat when completed) then EZ will most likely do the trick.
EZ provides dozens of predefined templates and has a custom part interface which allows for up to 6 bends. Additional templates are available from download.
There are dozens of pre-defined templates to choose from. Most templates allow for center, outside and inside dimensions. While scrolling down the list of templates, they graphically show up in the window on the right.
The templates are read in from a secondary file. This allows us to periodically create new templates and have them available for download.

Key EZ Features
Designer: Sketch 2D
• Click-and-sketch part creation.
• Adjustable grid-snapping.
• Sketch then adjust dimensions.
• Simple, easy-to-use 2D design.
Choose from dozens of predefined templates. The templates are easy to use and in seconds you will have your design completed and be ready to start bending.
Designer: Custom Part 2D
Create a part by starting at one end and then entering in the distance between bends and the angle at each bend. The length values can be apex or tangent values. Custom Part 2D allows bends to reverse direction (180 degree rotation).
The Material Library includes round tubing size, wall thickness, color, and weight.
Define your dies within the software. Definition includes CLR, Calibrated CLR (stretch factor), and Bend Location Offset.
Basic Calculation Output
Basic output includes the cut length, bend locations, bend angles, and rotation of 0.0 or 180.0 degrees. Each bend location is based from the end of the tube.
