iBend Pipe is the best conduit bending applicaiton on an iPhone, it helps you bend it right...the first time.
It calculates the following bends using English or Metric measurements so you don’t have to:
-Offsets Bends (specify towards an obstruction or away from an obstruction)
-Rolling Offsets Bends (specify towards an obstruction or away from an obstruction)
-Parallel Offset Adjustment
-Back to Back 90° Bends
-Kicked 90°s Bends
-Compound 90° Bends around a Round Obstruction
-Compound 90° Bends around a Square Obstruction
-Compound 90° Bends around a Rectangular Obstruction
+ HOW DOES IT WORK?
Simply slide your finger to set measurements and results are updated instantly. There is no need to navigate through multiple screens just to get a measurement. Easy and intuitive to use, and measurement are displayed in big font to make it easy to read.
+FAST ONE SCREEN CALCULATIONS
Simple one screen calculations that show results "live" and on the fly as you slide your finger to enter values in.
Centerline bending radius - based calculations are also available. These calculations offer greater accuracy when compared to bending multiplier methods. Preposition your bends automatically. All bends take shrink into account so you don't have to do any math. What's faster - bending it twice or bending it right the first time?
+PROTRACTOR FUNCTION INCLUDED
Use the included protractor function to measure the angle as you bend. Angle will be fed directly from your input screen to save you time.
Almost 100 different bender/pipe combinations included. You have the ability to tweak or completely modify any of the combinations to match your bender on the field.
+ WHO IS IT FOR?
If you consider yourself a craftsman that takes pride in his work, iBend Pipe is for you. If other "sparkies" come to you when they have a difficult bend, this is for you. If you want to have a smaller "bone" pile, this is for you. If you can write your name in conduit, this is for you. From, a 1st year inside wireman apprentice to a seasoned “old timer” this app will save you time and material.
Input fractions instead of converting to decimals and get results in fractions.
Thanks for all the great reviews, if you have any suggestions:
Bug Fixed - Offset Widget was only showing half of the controls, now all the controls are visible.
Ratings and Reviews
If you know the principals of bending pipe and just need an app to do your calculations this is the app for you when it comes to offsets and 90s we all know how to bend I really use this app for the saddles and it’s on point every time and shows you which way your Bender should be facing. This will help apprentices out a lot and I definitely feel like it was worth the 5$ you will get compliments from the boss no doubt. My only negative feedback would Would be nice to get more of a detailed description and you should be able to choose your Bender every time. I’m not sure how it tells weather your using 1/2 or 3/4.
Being a new installer conduit seemed pretty intimidating specially for the complexity of our projects but this app makes it easy to achieve the desired results my beds looks better than those of seasoned professionals ( even my boss and customer have praised my work)
Best so far
This is probably one of the easiest most versatile bending apps I’ve purchased. Sometimes no matter how long you’ve been bending it’s fun to try something different!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
