Similarities Between Bending Round and Rectangular Tubing

When the curved parts are to be used in construction, it is imperative that the steel fabricator and the bender/roller communicate exactly how the parts are to be oriented. Are the square tubes rolled against one of the sides or off-axis? Are the rectangular tubes rolled against the strong axis or the weak axis? Or are they to be rolled off-axis? Equally important is whether or not these curved tubes are architecturally exposed (AESS).
