• 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

Inside-Out Ornament SketchUp Tutorial in 3 parts

I made this tutorial a couple years ago and have intended to redo it but have not had the time. I've been asked to repost it, though and so here it is for those that are interested. There are two purposes for doing this tutorial. First, it explains how inside-out ornaments are made and second, it will show advanced techniques in SketchUp and many members of this community are becoming power users of SketchUp for wood turnings.

Here is an example of what these inside-out ornaments can look like:

I have given these ornaments as presents and people just love them because they cannot understand how they are made by just looking at them. I know it's a little late for Christmas, but some of my most popular ones have been inside-out Valentines Day gifts with hearts instead of Christmas trees, so there's always a good time to make these.

Here are the three parts of the tutorial. The first one describes the process of making and inside out ornament:

The second part shows how to make an ornament with a in-side out tree:

The third part shows how to draw a finial for the ornament:

There seems to be a problem with embedding three videos in a single post, so I just changed them to links to the tutorials instead. See the first post in this thread for the links.
