Hello all,

I have always enjoyed woodturning when I have the opportunity. Recently, my wife's cousin fro Maine mentioned that he was into segmented turning and I got curious. Found this group and purchased the software and look forward to seeing what I can do. Fortunately I am freeing up some hours and hope to get my workshop back into better order over the next few month and back into the woodturning. Looking forward to exploring this forum to see what folks are doing.

I live in Calgary, Alberta.

Welcome to WTP Forums Rick:

I have been using the Lloyd's software for many years. I found it easy to learn.
Take the time to review the training vids. (one note is some of the vids for WTP may not match exactly to the controls with the current version)

WTP gives you full control of each ring. SP is rules based and limits what you can do to modify an individual ring. Does have a great paint section.
I still use WTP as my go to design software. At times I may build a vessel in SP and then recreate it in WTP. (due to database differences, you cannot import/export between the two programs.

Ask question you might have and share your experiences. We all continue to learn.
