Bend-Tech PRO - $295 Buy Now

Bend-Tech PRO was introduced with our assembly interface which has taken the market by storm. With a modest price of only $295.00 everybody can design and fabricate tubing like the pros.

We spent countless hours observing and asking questions to our customers on how they would like to see PRO work. Our customers wanted the power but didn't want the learning curve and frustration that comes with a standard CAD system. We pealed back the pillars of standard CAD thinking and put together an interface that is logical beyond belief. Most customers are comfortable with full assembly design in less than 2 hours. Again don't let the learning curve fool you, customers are designing entire fabricated tube chassis the first night they sit down with the software.

The assembly interface consists of 3 primary functions.

  • Full 3D assembly design
  • Compete dimensioning
  • Cutting instructions including fish-mouthing

At anytime during the design in PRO's assembly interface you can lookup the details of a part and print out entire manufacturing instructions. PRO uses your tooling and materials libraries so you are confident you can create what is being designed.

Bend-Tech PRO will allow your creativity to become reality. PRO has empowered the fabricator. PRO allows any fabricator to become a proficient tubing manufacture in a few short hours. If you are a serious hobbyist, start up shop or a small full time fabricator, PRO will save you thousands of dollars in costly rework and material scrap.


Bend-Tech software requires an active internet connection in order to activate the license on your computer.

Key PRO Features

Designer: Assembly Design

For customers that do not have a CAD system we have provided an interface to build an assembly. Straight parts can be added with the created bent parts to make a complete assembly.

Cutting Wrappers

Create cutting wrappers (printed paper showing the cut profile that is wrapped around the tube). The wrappers include calibration rotation and location lines for proper alignment. Bend-Tech can also provide hole saw cutting location instructions.

Designer: Panel

This feature requires Bend-Tech SM module.

• Create/wrap panels between tubes in assembly.
• Create radius or notches to follow the tubing.
• Add holes and edit plates in Bend-Tech SM.

Centerline Adjustment

Design your part, and then adjust your parts in Inside/Outside/Center lines with click of a button.

Part Dimensioning

Dimension top, side, and front view of the part or assembly. Works great as a tool for shops to properly put together the parts in an assembly.

Spring Back Calculator

The Spring Back Calculator has an area to enter the angles of spring back experienced after bending which allows the software to automatically make the necessary adjustments. The "Results" and setup sheet have an additional column which includes the spring back angles.

Designer: Sketch 3D

• Click-and-sketch part creation in 3D.
• Adjustable grid-snapping.
• Sketch then adjust dimensions.
• Easy switching between XYZ planes.

Designer: Harpoon

• Click-and-drag part creation.
• Add/remove bends on-the-fly.
• Intuitive drag-then-type design.

Designer: Custom Part 3D

The Custom 3D Part interface allows you to enter the definitions of your part in a sequence following the center line of the material. Directional terms are easy to understand for creation of the part. These terms are; left, right, front, back, ceiling, and floor. The bend angles and rotations are automatically calculated.

Bending Simulation

Simulation helps the fabricator visualize the bending process before running the part through the machine. This helps to confirm the manufacturability of the part and the bend order .

Bend Order Manipulation

Bend from either end, flip the part between any of the bends, or do a custom sequencing. Verify your sequence using the Bending Simulation.

Designer: Custom Part

Create a part by starting at one end and entering the distance between bends, rotations between bends, and the angle for each bend. The length values can be apex or tangent values.

Designer: Sketch 2D

• Click-and-sketch part creation.
• Adjustable grid-snapping.
• Sketch then adjust dimensions.
• Simple, easy-to-use 2D design.

Designer: Templates

Choose from hundreds 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).

Material Library

The Material Library includes material shape, (round, square, or rectangle), size, wall thickness, color, and weight.

Die Library

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.

Post Bending Cutoff

Cutoff allows extra material to be added at the end of the tube for cutting after bending. The cut length and bend locations are automatically adjusted for cutoff values.

Security Dongle


If a valid internet connection is not available on your computer, you may choose to purchase a security dongle to use the software offline. This will allow your computer to run Bend-Tech software as long as the security dongle is plugged into an available USB port on the computer. This USB security dongle becomes the license for your software.

While the security dongle will allow your computer to run Bend-Tech software without an internet connection, there are a few drawbacks to using the offline method. Bend-Tech software will not be able to automatically download any new updates and the direct Help Session will not be available. Also, any maintenance of a security dongle requires shipment back to our facility and back to you at additional cost. If you are unable to provide shipment of your security dongle (such as loss or theft), you will be required to purchase the dongle with full price of your software.
