Exhaust Bend Template Programme

When fabricating an exhaust that involves bends it is often beneficial to create a 2d template of the bends. Not only will this make the construction of the pipe easier but also results in a more aesthetically pleasing pipe.

With the Torqsoft Exhaust Bend Template Programme, a 2d representation of the bend is drawn and then saved in an PDF file for immediate printing or saved to your computer for future use. After printing the paper template, the template can be glued to either cardboard or even a stiffer material such as wood. The straight pipe sections may also be printed and a full 2d template of the pipe created.

One such example is shown below for a 350cc Bridgestone racer project, were hardboard has been used as the template material.

Now enter a value of 200 for the length followed by 60 for the total turn angle. Enter a value of 9 for the number of individual sections for the bend.
