Conduit optimization the goal with Greenlee’s BendWorks software
By Renée Francoeur
August 25, 2015 – Greenlee says its new BendWorks software helps designers optimize conduit runs more efficiently.
BendWorks combines electrical trade knowledge and Greenlee bending parameters to ensure “error-free and export-ready” conduit runs for prefabrication or on-site bending. It is available for Autodesk Revit and Revit MEP.
The programming splits conduit runs to produce the fewest cuts and segments. The process continues as couplings are added to the models, and segments are labeled for traceability on the jobsite.
This software allows selection of various conduit types and sizes that automatically fit parameters specific to the following Greenlee benders: 555, 555C, 555CX, 555DX, 853, 854, 855, 854DX, 855GX, 881, 882, and the 1055 AutoBend 3D.
