• 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

Got to make a dizzy bowl

Hello, I have been turning for about a year. I watch all kinds of YouTube. I was intrigued with ThePapa1947 and his dizzy bowls. He showed how he made his bowls using Woodturner Pro. I just had to try my hand at creating a segmented bowl. I can't wait to get it started.

Hi Kevin.
Dizzy bowls are fun to make. You are not limited to the V shape that some turners do for a bowl from a board. While it can take more blanks to make a bowl you can do any shape you want. The important thing is the Outside and Inside Diameter. That is supplied in the Summary sheet of WTP.

I will export the summary sheet into Excel. I then sort by Outside Diameter. I add a column called blank. Then I look to see how many rings can be cut from the first blank. Attached is a wtp file and a spreadsheet that shows which rings i could get out a blank.
