Pipe bender compatible with Revit

What pipe benders is your company using for working in Revit?  Can you share your workflow?  Company is starting to look at pipe benders but the work flow including file type seem unclear at the moment.

Revit - not ready for Primetime given all of the add-ons, work arounds, and general issues with Fabrication in Revit.  Tired of them taking our money for little results.

If you know anyone over at Cannistraro (Boston) I believe they have one.

I don't think they're bending up whole sticks like a candycane like you'd see with a CNC bender or Greenlee bender in Electrical. Rather just bent stubs. So not sure if they need to drive it from Revit or not.
