• Are you looking for a coupon code to buy my software? You can get one from lots of 3rd party sites but they won't work. My software never goes on sale and has never been discounted. The only coupon codes that are given is when I give a club presentation and I offer a discount to the attendees. Other than that, everyone pays the same price.

    Error code

    Lloyd: Hope this will give a bit more insight. Start LP, set laminate to 3 strips symmetric, gen1 and then SW design. As long as I don't save the file I do not get the error message in LP. If I save the file, close LP, restart LP and open the file, I get the error message.. selecting...

    Thanks Lloyd for looking into it. What you stated makes sense. Would be happy to put the update through the ringer, so to speak. I do most of my work on my new laptop. 16GB ram,

    Error code

    Lloyd. For what it is worth I did another LP file with less laminate strip and get the same error. The error shows up after one saves the project, close LP, start LP and open the file. Don't ever remember seeing this error when running older windows XT, 10.

    Error code

    basically the number of repeating units is the number of segments you planned for the ring. So yes. However, I sometimes will add a couple for spares. that is if I was doing a 16 segment ring I may make it 18 repeating units in LP. Setting the number of repeating units in LP is used in the...

    Error code

    A question I can answer for you Alan. The process should be is first design your vessel in WTP or SP. That way you know the SEL for the featured ring. In LP the Repeating Unit (bottom part of the screen) should be as close to the SEL as possible. Basically the Repeating Unit is the SEL for...

    Playing around with LP. I rebuilt your project and made the 1/8" strip a bit larger. did the 1 Gen and then SW and things looked ok. No error. Save the file , closed LP and opened the saved file and got the error message. It is strange that things were fine till I saved the file and reopened...

    Error code

    Thanks for posting the file. . Your file does produce the same error code on my pc. This will have to be a issue for Lloyd to address. I did notice if I click on the continue button in the error message box LP keeps running.

    Error code

    Hi Alan. I have not had this error before. What one clue is the first part of the message regarding the rectangle of not having a width / height of zero. I suspect you are getting the error because your laminate is made up of not wide enough pieces. If you have the LP file please post it so...

    Diamond Feature Ring

    There are many ways to build a diamond featured ring. A google search will provide some of the videos that show how some made diamond featured ring. You can plan a diamond segment in Lamination Pro. I attached an example LP file. Basically have a symmetrical lamination board, set the angle...

    Importing Woodturner Pro Design

    The quick answer is no. One cannot import a WTP project into SP or SP into WTP. I agree that SP has a great paint feature. What I have done in the past is to design a vessel in SP. Using the summary sheet from SP I recreate the rings in WTP. While it is more time consuming to paint...

    Greek Key Using Laminate Pro

    Can't tell from your photo if all the repeating units are glued into one long strip. When I have done similar featured rings I only glue the repeating pairs together. So, in your example you would end up with 12 segment blocks - What I call the dog ears would be cut off so you end up with a...

    Greek Key Using Laminate Pro

    towards the end of the video it shows cutting the segments on a wedgie sled. The method shown in the video is pretty much the way I did it years ago.

    Shout Out From Castle Rock

    Welcome to WTP forums. Good place to get segment questions asked and answered. If you have viewed the tutorials on SP and WTP they can answer many of the questions you might have. WTP is the oldest software and gives full control of each ring SP is more rules based that automates many of the...

    wereto add ring design in woodturner pro?

    Select "painted segments" in the bowl settings. Also make sure that you set the number of segments you want per ring before painting the design. Select Paint from the upper bar to bring up the paint window. paint your design and when finished go back to bowl view.

    How to increase wall thickness of 1 ring

    In SP you cannot adjust the wall thickness for just one ring. - If all you are wanting to do is increase the wall thickness for one ring why not just make the stock you are cutting the segments out of wider. Example if SP says to use a board .75 inch wide for ring 15, make it 1 inch wide...

    Amount of wood needed.

    I use an 80-tooth thin kerf blade for cutting segments. Find that makes a very clean cut.
