Description

BendWorks® is a first-of-its-kind add-on software application for Autodesk® Revit® and Revit MEP that helps Building Information Modeling (BIM) modelers more efficiently optimize electrical conduit runs. BendWorks® allows for a smooth information transfer between BIM modelers and the electrical prefabrication shop or jobsite.  BendWorks® ensures that all conduit runs are error-free and export-ready for prefabrication or on-site bending with most Greenlee benders, saving time, and reducing cost for the electrical contractor.

 

Material Optimization

       Optimizes conduit runs for fewest cuts and segments

       Automatically or manually align couplings

   

Quality Control and Assurance

       Retains conduit parameters automatically during model modifications

       Automatically generates conduit identification for traceability on the jobsite

 

Error Checking

       Four types of error checking: setting, pre-process, process, and warning

       Adjust maximum bend angles and a total distance of conduit run

       Color-coded indicators on conduit for errors

       Checks for NEC violations and bender capacity

 

Model and Bend Accuracy

       Applies coupling gap information for more accurate installation

       Provides output files for BendWorks Go mobile app or to print for smooth information transfer

       Greenlee bender-specific output files provide step-by-step bend instructions to remove guesswork and reduce operator error 

Sample Greenlee conduit RVT files are provided within the installer and can be found under the following path

  • Does the Greenlee plug-in can be used for AutoCAD MEP
    Nag BoB | January 25, 2018

    The features are good


    Greenlee Textron | January 26, 2018

    Currently, the app is compatible with Autodesk Revit 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015. At this time, Bendworks is not compatible with AutoCAD MEP.


  • Tremendous improvements from earlier version
    Greg Cummins | August 24, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    The new version has so much to offer and with a much more affordable pricing structure. It really seems like the folks at Greenlee focused in on what the electrical contractors really needed to have successful workflows and productivity to support a Pre-fab environment. Using the 855GX in conjunction with the ability to optimize your conduit runs and align couplings allowed us to prefab over 900ft with less than 2 ft of scrap. Great job Greenlee!


  • Getting there.
    Gregory Matthews | February 25, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very pricey application, actual implementation for a high volume shop has a ways to go as of this date. Found a few bugs while using the optimization tool. In production environment we don't consider aesthetics, just accuracy. I have not had issues with lost data from custom parameters, but I will watch for that considering the comments from Shawn.


  • Great Idea, Still Needs Improvement
    Shawn Brennan | November 12, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    The idea here is great. Provide bend sheets to allow electrical to pre-fab with a spool drawing approach. Any manually-entered parameters are lost. Locations are Couplings are optimized for conduit lengths, but not aesthetics. I had a 6" Nipple on the run I sampled this with. Adjustments to make this more realistic are time consuming, and conduits aren't connected to each other, so the TAB-SELECT for a conduit run doesn't work.
