Hello pattern-makers, Long-time lurker here on the forum, glad to finally join the conversation. I got into segmented design 6 years ago in college under the tutelage of Ted Ross. Great teacher, made some pretty patterns in his day, anyways, he let us go wild with it for a month-long exploration into patterning with wood. After a failed attempt at tartan, I found the Rannefeld book online, and hand-drew, cut paper, then moved into wood. Now that I'm trying to do this professionally, this software is helping immensely. I do like turning, but I've yet to make a segmented vessel, my degree is in furniture design. I spend most of my time in Lamination Pro. Most of the projects I've done so far have just been straight runs after the second generation and vacuum-pressing to plywood to create laminated sheets to use as patterned panels. I love the Disc View in the program, and it's definitely inspiring some coffee tables. If anyone is on instagram, you can see what I'm up to by searching for DaveintheShop. Or check out my website at www.DaveintheShop.com Here's a few pieces I've done with the veneered panels and Clarence Rannefeld's guidance, I'm excited to see what this software suite can add to my repertoire.
