With the two kicks chances are unless the kicks are huge one kick will hit the pen. Two offsets would be better, one up the other back down. I might have a photo somewhere. :unsure:

How to bend it would depend on the size you're working with. ½ - 1" EMT, I'd just eyeball it. Maybe need two tries at it. Anything larger, or rigid, I'd revert to Plan B.

I agree. Basically, you'd take a 90 degree bend and raise it up to a higher parallel plane so that it clears the other conduit by using an offset on each side of the 90 bend.

It does remind of a bend that is used when you are making a 90 degree turn and transitioning from pipe vertically stacked on top of each other to pipe run horizontally next to each other.

I'm not an electrician and I find there is always a regional jargon. We called it a fan. Or you could do something like the attachment. conduit.jpg

I have done similar when going over an obstruction at the bend. Mark 6 or 12 inches from corner, do 15 degrees each way, Then bend offset at short end. Adjust measurement as needed.
