In this blog we would like to take a few minutes in helping you understand the settings that we have turned on in our software, so you can either match your settings to ours for replicating or getting the same results and or knowing how your software works or for converting purposes.

In your embroidery digitzing software and depending on what unit measurements your used to here is a chart that can convert between the units.
In Tajima DGML by Pulse V14 embroidery digitizng software the properties bar, statistic bar and status bar are all optional, these were standard in previous version and if you want to use them you must turn them on, they are OFF by default. Lets take a look..
The default screen "With out the properties bar"

Embroidery Settings Units of Measurement This setting changes your ruler around the edge of your work area, you can have it in either Millimeters or Inches. It will also affect your text height, and any other measurement setting. ( we use Inches )
Units of Density This what units you use for adjusting the density, there is no right or wrong as long as you understand how it works. ( .4 mm = 4pts = 63.5 spi we use SPI )
Absolute Density This is a setting of how you work with the density in your digitizing software , we have this option checked as it shows you what your density is, If you do not use this your density will show 0.0 as the density and you will then add more using +10 or subtracting -10 from the starting point of 0.0 equals 63.5 SPI with it checked WYSIWYG ( What you see is what you get).
