      The Segmented Project Planner is software that assists you in designing segmented projects for the wood lathe; making the task easier, faster, and more accurate. The program provides the most comprehensive support available for segmented vessel design and construction. It runs on the PC under all current Windows versions. Registered users get free upgrades.

      The Segmented Project Planner supports the beginning of the design activity by providing Sketch-A-Bowl™ for developing an initial shape for your object. Starting from a simple shape, you push/pull on the sidewalls of the object until it looks just right. Or, to trace a shape from a picture, or just sketch an object, use the Shape-A-Bowl dialog. In either case, save the shape as a segmented project file with a specified height, diameter, and layer thickness.

      The Segmented Project Planner supports the final design activity by giving you hands-on manipulation/control over each project layer and showing you what it will look like. It then lets you paint individual segments with wood colors, complex segments/mosaics or graphic images to better see what the final project will look like. You can also establish open segments or vertical spacers.

      Throughout your project, the Segmented Project Planner does all the math needed to completely describe your project. Just print the report and you can take it straight to the shop and start cutting, to get all angles, dimensions, and wood types for each segment of every layer. The program also prints angle, segment and ring templates to help in the setup and assembly process.

    • Free upgrades available to registered users
    • Extensive context sensitive help and on-line user manual

    Not self contained and far too many costly add ons

    Comments On Oct 27, 2015:I purchased this software with the expectation that it would be all that I would need to design segmented projects. I found that you really need to purchase the ebook AND the DVD to have a chance to understand all of the pieces of the software. On top of that I have come to find that even when you purchase the gallery of projects, it does not come with all of the necessary information in order to produce the feature rings that are in the examples that you purchase the gallery to be able to build. The software comes with two design modules, however, you must purchase design modules for some of the designs that are there. I contacted the software developer to ask several questions and he responded quickly in all cases. I asked about if there was somewhere in the software that I could go to in order to see how the feature is put together and if not that he should include it in the next revision to the software. The response I got was that he would consider it. Bottom line, I have spent over $100 on his products and wish that I had gone with someone else who's software comes with all of the necessary parts and modules or at least had all of the modules necessary to reproduce an existing project.
