• Having problems with video with Segment PRO on a new PC? You could be experiencing one (or both) of two problems. First, if you have an ultra high-resolution screen, the recommended settings might be higher than 1920 x 1080 with a scale factor of more than 100% and the user interfaces for all software written in c# will NOT be correct. Simply change the resolution and scaling to 1920 x 1080 and scale to 100%. Second, if you have a wonky Bowl View, you have an Intel Iris graphics solution and there are serious problems with it. Solution - go to the Drivers page at Intel's website and install their latest driver for your computer. This will fix it. Link: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download-center/home.html

Open segment bowl started - Petal

I find that tolerance to be unacceptable. Is there any mention from Jerry that they will be checking their process and maybe replacing your plate.

Well we are sitting here waiting for my nerves to setting down.
Inside is rough turned and outside cleaned up some, still lots of wall
You can see the pattern now
One small chip out at the very bottom but that should sand out

Three more open segment rows to go then the three closed segment rows.
This is where the top really starts to flare out so I wanted to get some of the turning done at least do deep

Started last nigh a little. The inside of the top ring. The thin maple ring sandwiched between the walnut I think is going to be nice.

Oh probably will not have to it really stand out. On the inside there is a taper to the ring so the maple accent rely stands out

Just a thought for some of the first timers watching this thread. For me when I'm turning the inside of open segment piece: Most turners don't like to work deep in a bowl with small tools because of leverage. When I do my Christmas ornament balls I will turn the row below the top row to get it round. It is easier to finish turn later if it is not rough on the inside. Go slowly. The top row helps keep the segments together. The other thing you can do is put a closed row in every 3 or 4 rows and then turn the I.D. If you build it into the design it can look good and makes turning much less stressful for a beginner.I like to turn the outside round each row so that when I'm turning the inside or sanding the face I don't have those sharp points going around. Hard on the hands.

Bowl is now turned and sanded out to 400 grit, I have managed to keep the ID inside of the OD. :):cool::p:D
Now to pick all the little fuzzes out of the hole before finishing.
