Anyone using Got trikes Bender with bendtech

Hello all, I am using a Got trikes bender with Bendtech 7x and having issues with my start location, the die is a pro tools 6'' CLR and I am bending 1.75 HREW, I have the program to the start bend location at the end of the strap.. The issue seems to be all my pieces are too long, IE, I bent the main hoop for the toyota, the Legs were close to 6 inches too long, but the width of the hoop was correct and after triming the excess the bends were in the correct location. I have recalibrated the Die many times and seem to keep getting the same issues.[IMG][/IMG]

Load you part onto the Bend-Tech screen and send over a support session (under your help menu). This will give me a quick idea of what is going on. Make a note referencing my name (Cris) so the support techs will have me take a look at it. Sounds like you may have a extra cut off in your defaults.

Thank you for the fast reply. Ill send a support session when I get to the shop later. I do know its not the extra cut off, I have accounted for that. I think I need to remeasure from the strap I use to set location to the part of the die where it actually starts bending? I would hate to change all the setting bc the tube turns out perfect minus the extra length at the beginning.
