VGP3D: Our expertise is pre-loaded on the machine.
The intelligent heart of your tube bending machine.
Since it is a native software for BLM GROUP tube bending and wire bending machines, VGP3D makes the most of its power, functionality, and add-on modules to guarantee part precision, quick changeover, simplicity of use, and robustness of the processes.
Awareness on all levels.
It is from the knowledge of every detail that every result is unique and perfect: geometry of the tube and wire to be bent, elastic response of the material, set-up parameters and tool adjustment, bending technology, thrust force, clamping torque, machine, accessories and functionality.
And you are ready
for multi-technology scenarios.
Part of a big family: BLMelements.
Software and machines exchange information, effectively integrating different production technologies to improve efficiency, simplicity, and production flexibility.
This is the magic of BLMelements.
Digital Bending: the new era of tube bending.
VGP3D imports the part and creates the list of bending tools you need. Tool Room monitors tooling inventory. If a tool needed is already in use, it identifies an alternative from your tool stock.
Request drawings of the bending tools you need directly online.
Once you have created your part on VGP3D, just connect to the online Tool Designer service and the system will create the drawings of the tools you need. You can download the files STEP or PDF formats.
You can then estimate the tooling cost and respond to your customers with an accurate quote.

VGP3D Advanced Features.
Eliminate waste and trial and error.
With B_Tools, your tube bending machine automatically compensates for the springback of the tube, so you have the part right from the start.
Importing the 3D model of the tube saves you time.
With B_Import, import bent tubes of various shapes (round, square, rectangular, etc.) into single parts or complex multi-part assemblies in IGES, STEP and XT formats.
In just a few clicks, geometry recognition and calculation of bending coordinates are automatic.
Compensating for springback requires no trial and error.
With B_Right, the tube bending machine automatically measures the amount of springback in the process and applies the compensations.
More online operations mean saving valuable time.
With B_Punch, you can manage directly from VGP3D punching, piercing, marking, and flow drill in line with the bending process.
True-to-life 3D graphics means safety.
With B_3D-Part, you can import 3D elements like flanges, fittings, and flexible parts on the tube. B_3D_Tools allows you to add 3D models of "special" shaped tools or other accessory elements. Simulate the feasibility of your part even more realistically.
Helices are simple with the right tool.
B_Helix automatically calculates the curvature coordinates of any helix starting directly from the diameter and pitch of the loop.
Don't waste time looking for the right program for each part.
B_Barcode identifies it for you by simply reading a barcode.
Save time, never go back to CAD again.
B-Export exports modified production parts to VGP3D into classic CAD formats.
Optimizes the quality of the finished part.
B_Weld calculates the optimal position of the weld seam to reduce stress on the weld bead during the bending process. The recommended position is shown in 3D graphics.
Measure any height and distance just in time.
B_measure is ideal when you have neither a drawing to import nor the coordinates of the part. You can also measure potential collisions and calculate the required distance to know your margin of safety!
