I recieved my EZ-3D a couple weeks ago (Very fast service. Thanks Chris.) After calibrating my 1.75" die I started bending (Still haven't read through the whole manual). The first 6 parts were very acurate. The 7th piece I built was a simple stinger for my Jeep. It was about 6" short. I couldn't figure out how it went wrong. I finally realized that I used outside dimensions for this part and the height (the measurement that ended up short) was figured to the Apex of the curve. When I projected the lines up the measurement was right about what I specified. Great product. This thing will save me tons of time doing projects. I do have a couple ideas that might improve the product for a little more productivity, at least for me, if your interested.

re: tj tire carrier

I just bent my first hoop this weekend. I have NEVER used a bender before and with this software the hoop came out perfect the first time. I never would have thought that my first hoop with 4 bends would have been so accurate. I am using the bend tech 3-d ez and a jd2 bender with the manual operation.

I had the frist versions of the bend tech software from about 3 or 4 years ago. I just purchased the EZ last year sometime. It work really well. I am wanting to upgrade to the full version again sometime soon.

Hey guys, Adam here, new to the board, but not new to Bend-Tech. I've been using it for about 8 months. I was a beta tester for Pro, and now have SE and love it all! I've only been fabing for about a year and a half, but I'm already turning out some good ideas. So far all I've gotten to bed up is one front and rear bumper, rock sliders, shock hoops, and some other little stuff. With Pro I designed a cage and have a lot of it bent, just isn't fit up yet. Now with SE I'll be doing an EXO for myself and a Jeep internal cage soon too I hope.

Love this stuff Cris, great work!

I have Bend-Tech Pro. I LOVE IT I have had it for about 4 months as I took part in the Beta testing. It will save me hundreds on my chassis as I have yet to bend any tube on my bender yet.

I have been fabbing for a while but no where near the scale on many of projects here but hopefully SOON I can with this program.

I have Pro and SE and they are great! I have had them for 9 months.
I have been learning to fab for a couple years.
Ive been interested in bending tube mostly and this software makes it possible and so much more.

I have been able to make bumpers, cages, etc with absolute accuracy. Not to mention a blue print for everything.

I used to have a pile of scrap and messed up bent pieces and not much profit. Now I have no messups and more profit.

Thanks Cris!

Hello all,
I've been cutting and welding for a long time. All self and book taught. Mostly for fun, some repair work at the shop. Never and tube work I'm looking forward to it.
Major projects have included a dovetailed flatbed car trailer,(race car hauler and shop tow truck)
Rolling gantry w/adjustable height beam (auto repair was slow one winter, took in a boat motor swap, cherry picker engine hoist just wasn't tall enough.)
Four wheeler trailers n stuff
Full length sub frame connectors for a few mustangs
And, what got me here, through the floor, boxed sub frame connectors for my C Prepared autocross mustang That serve as the base for a full cage I'm gonna build.

Oh ya,,, Got BT Pro, and a 105 hydro Thanks Cris and Keith! Great Products and service!!

Micha,
Gaylord's Automotive Services

Love the location for post #2 in this thread!!! Fabganistan !!

its a little late in the game but i got Pro a little over a year ago, and just recently upgraded to SE with the DXF import/export module.

Both programs are extremely helpful.


-Not to bug you Fabcam, but i am still having a couple quirks with the dxf exporter. It isnt a big deal because its not major at all and the problem is easily worked around-

-Grant-
