    SW2Bender software is designed to quickly and automatically convert your Solidworks part files into bender and measuring center files.
 



 


What is SW2Bender Software?

SW2Bender software is designed to allow data to be converted from Solidworks 3D Sketch Mode tube shapes to data that is compatible with the Advanced Tubular bender communications software called Benderlink.


SW2Bender Program Features

  • Runs with Solidworks running in the background
  • Complete conversion to Supravision (Sheffield, Romer, MM5000, Advanced Tubular Benderlink
  • Supravision file format is compatible with many measuring centers
  • Compatible with Advanced Tubular's Benderlink Communications Software
