I have not used any software to design and make the segmented pieces that I've done so far, other than an Excel spreadsheet that I worked up to give me segment dimensions.

However, I looked at Lloyd's new program and watched the videos. It looks very good.

I am posting this only to comment on Lloyd's support of the product. I had a question about what the program could do to help me design a specific piece that I have been asked to make. I wrote to Lloyd this past Saturday evening to ask my question. Lloyd replied early the next day - a Sunday morning. I have no affiliation with Lloyd at all and have never communicated with him before. I think that support like this deserves to be applauded.

Lloyd has produced a great design software for segment turners.  I concur his support for his products has been excellent.  He takes the time to listen to the users suggestions to improve the product. 

I started out with the WTP suite of software and still use them.  SP fills a niche in the design process by simplifying some of the design processes (pattern designs for one).
