Convert to Smart Bend

Convert to Smart Bend


Replaces a native Revit conduit offset or kick 90 bend with an EVOLVE Electrical smart bend.

  • eVolve tab ⮞ Conduit Bends panel ⮞ Smart Bend menu ⮞ Convert to Smart Bend button


  1. From the eVolve ribbon, in the Conduit Bend panel, click Convert to Smart Bend.
  2. From the drawing area, select the first conduit fitting which will be the stationary end of the smart bend.
  3. From the drawing area, select the second conduit fitting which will be the pivot end of the smart bend.
  4. EVOLVE Smart bend will replace the selected conduit fittings.

Tips and Tricks

We encourage users to only work with eVolve Bend Families for the best results. When modeling with eVolve Electrical's advanced conduit tools, such as Optimize Bends and Auto-Couplings, we recommend using the following workflow:

  1. Model conduit runs utilizing our smart bend families. (Without adjusting them)
  2. Use Align Conduit when necessary for conduit spacing
  3. Optimize the bends using Consume Selected End and/or Consume Adjacent Ends commands and make any adjustments
  4. Use Align Couplings to align the bend couplings
  5. Use Place Couplings to place couplings along the run (We recommend using the "Change of Direction" option when using this workflow and using steps 2-5 section by section)
