I think it will show you a problem exists, if you are smart enough to catch it. There are provisions for changing bend angle and direction also. Say if you have two bends close together in the middle then you can bend from each end of the tube towards the middle.

Look in the simulations.

Edit: In 7x go to custom part then "Part Details" then "Bend Order" in that window you have the 5 different options for bend order. Sometimes you can solve the interference by bending from the opposite direction. It will take a little goofing around to see if you are clear or not though. The software does have the "manufacturing ability" feature available in the higher versions starting with SE.
