I got Bend-Tech Pro along with a bender the first part of December 06. Before that all I've done is weld up square tubing to make a few things here and there, one being a double decker train stand for my dad's 1" 1/2 scale steam loco he's building. Got my first welder maybe 2 years ago so I haven't been doing this for long, it's just a hobby

Just realized I had not signed up, ooops.
I have had Bend Tech for a long time now. I think about 5 years. have just now upgraded to the pro. I had the old Pro in the begining, lost the disc, computer crashed, lost the program. Repurchased The EZ-3D and now here we are. I love it. It makes things some much easier. I am looking forward to using the assmebly features in the new pro.
Thanks Chris for all your hard work and continuing efforts to make our jobs a little easier.

Awesome

Just Received my 105 HD Friday, and BT Pro Saturday, sat down and installed and tried to play with it without going thru the tutorial, boy was I lost... went thru the tutorial then played around with all my new knowledge I learned... Awesome... Cant wait to get to building...

Does anyone have templates of stock sport bars for Jeeps? It would be kinda nice to have a template area of stock hoops locations etc... without getting into users designs unless they are willing....

I bought Pro a couple of months ago and it is great. I always used to lay out tube by sketching on the floor, but now I save my knees and get to archive it for reference later. Chris's customer service is great! I had some problems and he walked me through the solution with an explanation.

I bought Pro in December 2006. After talking with Chris and realizing that I wanted a little more capabilities I went ahead and upgraded to SE. I have started to build my sandrail. I am also going to build a second sandrail for a friend of mine. My son is currently building a bumper. I plan to build a rock crawler after I finish the rails. I have soo many projects in my mind that I can see that Bendtech will put me miles ahead of where I would be if I had not bought the software.

I have had pro for a few month's and have been too busy to sit down and learn it. Still doing the old fashion way. Hopefully I get a chance to calibrate the bender to the software soon.

I have been building/fabbing for over 20 years. My JD2 is 8 years old.

Killer B, Take the time to learn it. It's a great product. I've never bent tube before so I started bending using Bend-Tech Pro which I got in Jan. 07 and I almost have my chassis finished of my 1st project. When BT does the math for you its really hard to mess up. All my pieces fit together nicely as long as I bent it to the right angle, but hey that's the Tube Benders fault right?
Anyhow great product and it took me about 4 hours to get it down. Just design something out of your head for practice and then when u really need it for a real project you'll have it down. I've had to ask Chris a couple of Questions but he was always available via OFN or the phone and I couldn't ask for better Customer Service.

Bought Ez in 2002, used it for multiple roll cages and bumper stingers.

Upgraded to Pro when I opened my shop in June. Three cages, multiple bumbers and work tables for a induction molding plant.

Used the assembly for a demistration on houw I would build the tables.

Thanks chris for a great product.

Starting using Bend-Tech years ago and haven't looked back since.

A little over a year ago I upgraded from EZ to PRO and while I'm still learning all of the functions, it's paid for itself many times over.

I have built dozens and dozens of roll cages, bumpers, display stands, you name it with this program and they always come out perfect.

I designed and produced cages and bumpers for RUV motorsports for their UTV's. I couldn't have done it in the time and volume that I did without this program


Thanks.

Tell us the product that you have (EZ, EZ-3D, Bend-Tech full, etc..) and how long you have used it.

Let us know how long you have been fabricating and what you have manufactured.
Bend Tech Pro just got off the phone with Cris and he was a great help. Now to actually build something.
