    Hi! I am new to Segment PRO and wanted to add the diamond feature ring that is available as a species. Where is the cut plan for this or do I need to create it in Lamination PRO using the dimensions provided for the feature ring? Thank you.

    Hi Cheryl.
    Sorry for the delay on responses. Was out of town for a few days.

    WTP nor SP creates a cut list for a diamond segment ring. You could create it in LP. What is important is knowing the segment length you need for the featured ring which you would get from SP or WTP. You would need to adjust your strips in LP so the repeating unit is very close to or matches the desired segment length.

    Jim Rogers explains a simple process for making diamonds for a featured ring.

    You could also do a search for vids that give directions on how to create.

    Thanks for the info mfisher. I will check out the link and search for some videos. I was able to get a similar diamond design in LP using the dimensions of the feature ring from SP but the blackwood diamond was larger than I would like. I like the look of the diamond feature ring in SP with a smaller black diamond. Thanks again for the reply and no need to apologize for the delay.
