I modeled a rod bending machine. I used solidworks composer to describe their working principle. but I couldn't know how to bend the pipe in composer module. is there any tool or way available to bend the circular pipe?
this is very difficult. It is not possible to bend a geometry!
But you will be able to cut the curve in Solidworks in to 6-8 Parts (every 15°) With this modified geometry it will be able to translate/rotate one after the other to get a visual effect like bending.
This is a little bit tricky but in most cases this helps.
I realize that GIF animations are old-school. But, they still have a place and are simple to do with screenshots of incremental Solidworks configurations. This was created using an 8 sheet (4 view/sheet) SW drawing.
