        Pro-Tools actually gives you plans to build a bender that uses their dies:

          Yes it is in fact I believe a BMP-200, which is the one I have (I did not build it, just bought it). In my learning curve with this bender and bending 1.75X.095 there is NO spring back on a 90 degree bend, we also use Bend-Tech 3D software, great stuff, and a JD2 T100 notcher, the setup works well for us.
