09 - Using Lamination PRO with Segment PRO

Although you can make your feature ring segments using hundreds of different methods, there is no simpler way of designing them than using Lamination PRO. The key is knowing the two important dimensions that you have to know before you start using Lamination PRO: the height and width of the feature ring segment.

REMEMBER: the Segment Edge Length from Segment PRO must be the same as the Repeating Unit from Lamination PRO and the thickness of the feature row must be the number that you use for the 'Export Region' in Lamination PRO.

Got it and see where I made my mistake. I have just been using slide. Using the SW method removes more of the center to increase the outer part of the surrounding area of the diamond. Will give it a try next time I am in the shop. I knew it was possible but missed that step somehow. Very powerful program!

Thanks for the help.

I see the thickness which is the height and the length and I understand that ..when creating the feature ring do I use the with width as per segmentpro table suggest ... or is there a setting I missed in lamination pro?

When using lamination pro to make a southwest design after I cut out middle does it matter the saw kerf when I cut the other strips

Thanks

- In LP go to File Options.
In that Options Box you can select your blade width. That is used by LP for all cuts. So yes it matters what the saw kerf is.
You also have the option to select your measurements in inches or metric.

In LP the export region setting is basically your segment (ring) height. So that setting would be the ring height in SP or WTP for the featured ring.
The Repeating Unit is your segment edge length or how wide you segment is.

mfisher .. thank you ..

ok so if i am laying out a 3 part lamination it tells me 1/2' top 1/4 middle 1/2' bottom .. i assume the thickness has to be what the ring thickness calls for in sp .. i am a measure twice cut once guy is the a place to make that setting ?
