New to the software and forum. Been turning for a few years but trying to be a little more serious with the things i want to make. Have turned about a dozen segmented bowls pretty much using the same design to learn what the hell i am doing. Time for newer designs.
My experience is the software really eased the design process.
WTP gives you full control of each rings
SP is rules based and limits some control of each ring. It has a great paint program for designing patterns.
