Bend-Tech EXH Module
The Bend-Tech EXH is specially designed to aid in the manufacture of exhaust tubing/pipe.
The main interface of Bend-Tech EXH gives you the ability to re-create the critical components of a vehicle (axles, mufflers, gas tanks, etc) and then properly route the tubing around them. This interface also allows you to create multiple bent and straight tubes within the same design. You can then obtain the cutting/bending instructions for each tube.
The interface is easy to use, using a grid with directions related to a vehicle and a built-in offset tool for avoiding obstacles.
Also included in EXH are several other part designers, including dozens of Templates, Custom Part (LRA), Custom 3D Part, Sketch 2D/3D.
3D Parts & Components
Design and create exhaust tubes around axles, mufflers, gas tanks, and etc. Then the software will provide necessary bending instructions such as length, rotation, and angles, of the tubes with accurate exhaust tube bending and fabricating.
Bend Calculation Output
Software will provide cut length, bend locations, bend angles, and rotations of your created parts for accurate bending/fabrication. Each bend location is based from the end of the tube.
Create 3D objects with custom dimensions such as mufflers, axles, tires, and etc. Once created, these objects can be placed inside main 3D environment for accurate exhaust tube routing.
Obtain/Print flat layout of designed parts. Users can choose which part of the bend they wish to mark (Start/Center/End), along with rotations, angles, spring angles, and CLR display options.
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. (*Does NOT check for collision.)
Designer: Sketch 3D
Designer: Sketch 2D
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.
Multiple Dies for Single Part
Define a part with size definitions for each individual bend.
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.
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.
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.
|Bend-Tech software requires an active internet connection in order to activate the license on your computer, and then every 6 months after.|
This module requires latest version of PRO or SE.
