New to woodturner. Of the 4 apps, what is the order that you would use to build a turning? I will start with the tutorials then in order.
Hi Ronald
Lamination Pro is an app for building designs for featured rings or bottoms. It is not necessary to build a turning.
That said. In using WTP you should use 3D design first to come up with a profile. Then import to WTP to build your vessel and cut list. WTP gives the most control of the rings compared to SP.
You will get more responses if you start a new thread in the proper forums.
Hello from the Antipodes, I'm an old but experienced fogie looking forward to trying a new way to design and make segmented vessels.
Hi, Mike, I'm down in Mesa, AZ for the month of Feb. Wondering where you get most of your wood? Where are you in AZ??
Hi Bob: I am on the other side of the valley in Sun City West. Most of my wood is purchased from three sources.
- The Woodclub in SCW (not open to non members)
- Woodworkers source. They have one in Tempe (645 W Elliot Rd, Tempe, AZ 85284. I use the one in Phoenix (18115 N. Black Canyon Hwy)
- Apple Blossom Woodworks
- last, from tree trimmers in SCW. Can get mesquite, olive, palo verde, acacia.)
I am new to woodturning. I became a Pro Member, purchased the software, Stomper Deluxe and one easy plate..
How do you change the default setting for a design ring? I thing the default in segment pro is 16.
Hi Gary: First welcome to WTP forums. I would suggest you post your question in the Sofware Support / Segment Pro section rather here in your profile page. The defaults are preset depending on the level (Novice, Intermediate, Advance) You can change the Segment number in the Bowl Setting window. Just remember to save your plan when done.
Hi Mark.
Welcome to the WTP forums. Glad to see another Arizona member. You are not to far from where I live. I am in Sun City West. Great woodshop and other facilities.

If you are ever out this way I sure would love to meet you. I have not driven a vehicle since I was in the bombing in the middle east in 2008. Let me know and I will give you my wife's cell phone or my email.

Hello, I have Segment Pro & Woodturner Pro. Can I use either program for measurements when making board bowls? Thanks for your help.
Hi Woodsmith:
- You may get more responses if you start a thread rather than ask questions in your profile post area.
- To answer your question currently WTP or SP is not set up to calculate a bowl from a board as I believe you would like it to do.
Thank you for answering back.
lloyd, i had to get a new compute as my hard drive failed how can i get the software down loaded to my new machine? i will try and download it again?
thanks for your help, ed
I am brand new to woodturning and looking for a mentor in the Lake Havasu City, AZ area. If there is someone out there please let me know.
How can I obtain my authorization code for Segment Pro? I cannot find the email I received in January, 2019 with it and now I need to reinstall it on a different computer. Please let me know what I need to do to obtain this. Thank you.
Tom, Go to your profile page and under preferences you will find your Auth-1 code to activate your software.
Thank you very much!
