Which version is best for me?

EZ EZ3D PRO
- you are going to bend less than 20 parts in a year.

- most of your bending is 90 degree with no rotation
 
- you have limited tube bending experience

- EZ is typically sold as an OEM product for hobbyist style benders. 
- want to find the bend rotation

- want to design in 3D

- need to flip the part between bends

- you don't line the bend mark with the exact location of where the bending starts... 
- you end up welding multiple pieces together

 

- don't have any other CAD design software tools
