If you're trying to decide whether to purchase Woodturner PRO, Segment PRO or both, this tutorial will show you the differences in both features and the method by which you design your segmented projects.

I need to remake that video and remove the reference to those statements. Because Segment PRO is rules-based, it became clear that it would be necessary to limit the functionality to just those needed to make ‘standard’ segmented bowls. To allow changes at the row level is not something you would find in a standard bowl and the software would need to be far more extensive and complicated than what was intended to allow it.

The reason that I’m not willing to make Segment PRO more complicated is because the most powerful piece of software for non-standard bowls is Woodturner PRO. It is not rules-based and so you are in charge right down to the Segment level.

The important thing is that before you start a project, you need to decide whether it is going to be a standard Segmented bold or non-standard and then use the right software. Segment PRO for fast and easy and Woodturner PRO for powerful and flexible.
