Hi guys, I'm new here and really don't know if it's the right place to post this question, I hope yes, so here I go
I'd like to know how do you guys quote/give a price for a bending tube request?
Of course it could be a single 90º bend or a complete roll cage, in this particular case I'm more interested to know how to calculate for a roll cage where is much more labor involved, I'm mean, there is not only the bending tube process if not the previous measurements, calculate how much tube you'll need, maybe to get apart some parts of the vehicle to get access for the tube work and then reinstall them etc etc...
I fortunately last year got the Bend-Tech 7x software what's a real good tool to make this kind of projects/process easier, accurate and to make the final product looks really good and pro, OK if you know how to use it
, I still have a lot to learn about the use of this software, but this is another story.
I mean, knowing hot to use perfectly the software will reduce your time consuming in the drawings and you'll feel sure that what you see in the screen is what you'll really see in the final product, which is not my personal case yet, but I have no problem spending more time at the software to finally get a good product if this is my way at this moment.
So I'd like to know an average and what do you guys take in count to quote for example a roll cage for a jeep or a sammy
Your opinions and advice are very welcome
