Convert tube shape data from Autodesk Inventor Professional to data that is compatible with the Advanced Tubular bender communications software called Benderlink and any bender that supports Supravision files.

​How It Works

Imports Inventor part files for complete conversion to Supravision (Sheffield, Romer, MM5000, Advanced Tubular Benderlink Supravision file format is compatible with many measuring centers

Use converted files to send data to the following systems:

​Advanced Tubular VTube-LASER with FARO: 
The FARO arm uses our VTube-LASER software to measure tubes.


​Data converted by AI2Bender can be imported directly into the SMT/Advanced Tubular CNC Bender operator station over your network.


6-axis portable measuring center that uses the G-Tube software and can also read Supravision files.


A portable 6-axis measuring center that uses SUPRAVISION software to measure tube shapes.


The Multi Measure 5000 is a 5-axis measuring center that uses SUPRAVISION software to measure tube shapes.


Advanced Tubular Benderlink can import Supravision software for transfer of data directly to many tube bending machines.
