TubeShaper V2 tube measurement software has been updatedClick image to enlargeHexagon's much-anticipated update to tube design, analysis and production platform TubeShaper delivers important new functionalities to customers in tube and pipe manufacturing. 

TubeShaper v2 offers an innovative new licensing concept that makes it more economical for multiple users to share measurement results and bending plans across different locations. 

Under this new licensing concept, a new low-price ‘offline’ license allows production supervisors, engineers and designers to work on TubeShaper projects separately from operators measuring tubes on the shop floor so that more tasks can run concurrently, saving time and reducing software investment.

With this update, the wide range of benders with which TubeShaper is compatible has been expanded and covers machines from market leaders including Eaton Leonard, BLM, Addition MT, Numalliance and more.

TubeShaper still features the wide range of popular features, including spring-back management and in-bend measurements for more accurate results in deep or shallow bends. 

The sketch function allows users to create a first tube from just a few digitized hard points, while automatic report creation ensures that results can be shared instantaneously to any location.
