Conduit Bend Settings

The eVolve Project Bend Settings Window

To further enhance project efficiency and accuracy, the Project Bend Settings window allows for the option to choose from many different conduit benders that are commonly found in the field, and add new or custom benders. Like many other features, this one utilizes our powerful grid menus. These menus are highly customizable and allow for on the spot editing of bender data. To make this feature even more efficient, different benders can also be assigned to specific diameters of multiple conduit types. These settings can easily be shared by exporting and importing into a project.

The Bend Lookup Tab

To Add a New Bender:
  1. From the Project Bend Settings window, in the Bend Lookup tab, click on "Click here to add a new row." That is located towards the top of the grid.
  2. Name the new bender type, then add the appropriate information into the remaining fields. The specific bend values are located in the bender manuals.
  3. Click Apply or OK to save the bender data into the project settings.

To Add Multiple Benders:
  1. From the Project Bend Settings window, in the Bend Lookup tab, click Export/Import.
  2. Click Export to File from the menu that appears.
  3. Open the new .xml file, locate a section with similar sizes to the new bender, and copy it onto a blank page. Swap out the name and bend data to the new bender.
  4. Copy and paste that section back into the original .xml as an additional bender and save the file.
  5. From the Project Bend Settings window, in the Bend Lookup tab, click Export/Import.
  6. Click Import from File from the menu that appears.
  7. Click Apply or Ok to save the bender data into the project settings.
The bend information for benders is typically located in the bender manual, on the bender itself, and on the manufacturers website. We have included the manuals for the benders that are shipped with eVolve in the eVolve resource folder.

The Bend Configuration Tab

In Bend Configuration, different benders can be applied to various diameters of multiple conduit types. When modeled, the bends for each type will automatically be created using the assigned bender data.

To Assign Benders to Conduit Types:
  1. From the Project Bend Settings window, click the Bend Configuration tab.
  2. Select an available Conduit Type from the menu and a drop down will appear below it with the listed benders and diameters they are assigned to for that type.
  3. To make a change, edit the Bender Type/Name next to each diameter. Be sure it matches identically to a bender that is listed in the Bend Lookup menu.
  4. Click Apply or Ok to save the bender data into the project settings.
