Description

QuickBend is the fastest and most precise conduit bending calculator app. Designed to be innovative and intuitive while remaining visually appealing. This advanced conduit bending calculator offers the most accurate measurements by taking into account the radius of the shoe and bender, plus the conduit type and size diameter. All measurements are generated using the centerline radius algorithm, and have all been rigorously processed and field tested. Even the bends displayed within QuickBend are generated using the same engine.

Built for electricians by an electrician. QuickBend can be used by anyone working with conduit or tubing whether you are a seasoned professional, a novice cub, or even a DIY enthusiast. Made to avoid simple mistakes, and to save time and money. In addition to providing fast and precise calculations, there is plenty of information and documentation provided for individual bends. Explanations on how to use specific features, and step by step process to bending conduit.

Offering the most intuitive method to input data. Whether you want to get straight to the point, or comb through the possibilities of a bend. You can switch back and forth between different input styles such as a number pad, or a slider bar (Press & Slide). Both having their unique advantages. QuickBend allows you, the user to toggle between three different types of measurements; inches, foot + inches, and centimeters.

With QuickCheck built into QuickBend, there's a subtle change in text colors when a bend is impossible (red), or whether the bend may be unlikely to work (orange). This app for convenience, and we want it to benefit you. So much so that we added it into the input styles for bends, so you can see if a bend is possible before even tapping on the bend amount.

Supporting the following bends!
• Offset
• Rolling Offset
• Matching Bends Offset
• Matching Centers Offset
• Parallel Offset
• Three-Point Saddle
• Four-Point Saddle
• 90° Bend
• Kick with 90°
• Matching Bend Kick
• Matching Center Kick
• Parallel Kick
• Parallel Kick: Forward
• Compound 90° - Circle Obstruction
• Compound 90° - Rectangle Obstruction
• Compound 90° - Square Obstruction
• Segmented 90°

Plus you have the ability to layout multiple bends on a single conduit, and get each measurement for a mark on the conduit. With the option to easily flip an individual or set of marks per bend.

There's no limit to QuickBend. Easily, select between different types of benders and choose the size of the shoe and conduit type all within the same screen that you are working on. No need for complex navigations. In addition, you can pin benders you use the most, so you can select and switch between them quickly without consistently scrolling. All benders are spec'd out using the information provided by the manufacturers, and worst case scenario if one of the many benders available don't match the one you are using you can now add in your own bender. There's also an option to not select a bender and to use the multiplier method.

Edit and view all of your benders' specifications. Detailed information on the centerline radius, deduct, gain, setback. Plus the ability to view the travel, and radius adjustment for any degree bend between up-to 90°. All of this is visualized and edited within the 'Bender Specs'.

Exceptional App!

I only write reviews when I feel extremely compelled to and this is one of those cases. I’ve tried almost every other conduit bending app and this is hands down the BEST value of all. Most other bending apps have a terrible UI and clunky controls that are frustrating and unintuitive.
This app has a beautifully designed, and functional UI that makes everything clear and easy to read. It also features unique functions like the option to have all marks on the pipe set for the deduct line so you don’t have to try to remember which bender reference to use on which bend. It also tells you when a bend will be difficult or impossible to perform by changing the color of the numbers. Not to mention it has clear and concise step-by-step instructions for every single bend you could need to perform. Great for JW’s that struggle with explaining things.
Totally worth the money for the tools you get in the app.

Easily eliminate 95% of your conduit math

QuickBend **crushes**…well worth the 4$ to a fellow IBEW brother.

Choose your bender (Chicago, sidewinder, shoe, hand benders of any and all brands), your type of bend (back to backs, offsets, 90’s with or w/o kick, splitting 90’s over an obstacle, you name it) and QuickBend spits out the numbers so that you can make all of your conduit marks before making a single bend.

Thanks and solidarity from LU 103✊👍

Amazingly helpful, some small missing features

I am BLOWN AWAY by how helpful this app is in my day to day. It’s become absolutely essential when figuring how to bend pipe. My favorite feature is the “Multiple Bends”.

2 questions though:
1. Could it be possible to add a compound 90 into the “Multiple Bends”?
2. Could you also add a way to add space between the different bends you load. For example, say I wanted to make a offset and then a compound 90 after that, but wanted to add 11 3/4” between them. It would be nice to be able to add that into the list of “bends” rather than having to make that adjustment manually.

Overall it’s a fantastic tool, I’ve just encountered scenarios where those features would have been helpful.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the review.

1. I'll look into adding compound 90s for multiple bends, soon.
2. I've considered doing this, for a while. However; I think the complexity of the feature would make it more difficult. I'll try to see if there's a simple alternative in the future.
