BendWorks® is a first-of-its-kind add-on software application for Autodesk® Revit® and Autodesk® 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.
• 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
• 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
