Segmented Woodturning Software For Mac

Running the Segmented Project Planner on a Mac. More and more people are asking me about the prospect of running the Segmented Project Planner on a Mac, so I've done a little research to find out what can really be done. The news is good and getting even better! Through the end of 2005 there was just one solution, Virtual PC. Segmented Wood Turning Bowls Software. Wood Workshop v.1.0. The Wood Workshop is a free seamless texture editor that specializes in the creation of seamless wood textures. It comes with a collection of over 100 preset wood textures, all perfectly seamless and ready to go at resolutions up to 3000 x 3000! File Name:WoodWorkshopSetup.exe. Our flagship product, Woodturner PRO lets you add segmented rings such as closed and open segments, staves and compound segments. Simply add rings until you've reached the height of the wall profile and a single click of ProfileSNAP will cause.

Is Creative Woodturner easy to use?

Yes. We understand at MDR Software that not all woodturners are computer literate so the software has been designed from the outset to beeasy to use. The tutorial, simple program layout and help pages combine together to get you started in no time at all.

Where can I buy the software?

MDR Software sells direct either via the internet, telephone or post. We attend shows and exhibitions, where you can also purchase the software.

Can you export the 3D view into a photo editing package?

New to version 1.5

Yes, go to the design page and click on 'Export'. Change the options (image size, BMP, JPEG) then 'Browse...' for the location where you want to save the image. Click 'Export 3D view' to save the image.

On the computer requirements it says 'Recommended: Graphics card with 3D Hardware acceleration'. Does my computer have this?

A graphics card with 3D hardware acceleration will increase the drawing speed of the 3D view, but does not affect the image quality. Any computerbought within that last 5 years is very likely to have a graphics card with 3D hardware acceleration, but older computers will still be fine.

Can you do segmented turning?

The software is not designed to do segmented turning, but other blockwork effects can be achieved by designing your own wood images. In the 'blockwork'category of wood images there are some examples, one of which is shown here:

Can you do off-centre turning?


Is there an Apple Mac version?

No, but it will run on VirtualPC (a PC emulator for the Mac), however slower than on a PC.

What is the maximum size of the design area?

The size of the design area is not limited, so you can design turnings of any size.

What is the maximum print size?

You have two options when printing. You can print full-size plans, in which case you are limited by the maximum paper size of your printer. However, if the turningis too large to print full-size, you can choose to print it scaled down to fit on the paper.

Can I upgrade my CD-ROM version to the latest download version?

Yes - owners of copy of Creative Woodturner on CD-ROM can upgrade to the latest version free of charge. In summary, you must register your activation code online, uninstall the current version of Creative Woodturner (this does not delete any saved files) and install the download version.
