Bend Tech SM (Sheet Metal) Software

Bend-Tech SM is designed for the hobbyist, schools, proto-type shop, maintenance facility or performance shops. It is their answer to the sheet metal and plate design world. You will no longer need to spend the big dollar or otherwise obtain the high-end solid modeling systems to design sheet metal parts. In addition, being comfortable with this software doesn't require a week-long training course or several volumes of help guides and tutorials.

Bend-Tech SM takes on an approach of design from a 2D perspective; some may refer to it as 2 1/2D. Don't be fooled, most of the work is done in 2D, however, the model that is built is full 3D. A user works on a flange or the bend zone with easy-to-find CAD tools for geometry design and manipulation.

The designers at Bend-Tech know sheet metal and understand what is needed to make quick work of designs. You will find many specific features to make your design faster, such as: path text, bridging, slots for bend relief, void slots for bend zones and manual bending, corner notches, and specific hole shapes including dimple die and ellipse; just to name a few.

Bend-Tech SM will output a DXF file to send to CAM systems for cutting or give you a one-to-one drawing on multiple sheets of paper to be used as a scaled template for fabrication. The software's flat layout will provide bend radius, angle, and direction information, as well as allow a user to dimension the tangents of each bend or the center bend line for help in bending.

If all of that wasn't enough, Bend-Tech SM has an assembly module. You can design your plates or sheet metal and assembly them together. Assembly will help you to determine if you have the look you want or make sure the parts go together correctly.

Use Bend-Tech SM as a module within Bend-Tech PRO or Bend-Tech SE and you will find yourself designing tubing, plate and sheet metal together.

Bend-Tech SM is in a class to itself. This is the ONLY sheet metal and plate design software available on the market that is aimed primarily at the hobbyist, schools, proto-type shop, maintenance facility or performance shops.
