  1. Hello, I have a Brother VR and love it but i have recently been downloading free designs from internet and as some of the designs are too big i resize with wilcom (free edition) but when I make the design the stitch count is so high that it basically cuts the design out of the t shirt and you can see big holes around the design. I have used Buzzsize to adjust the size and stitch count but now it misses inner parts of the design out. Any advise would be amazing as I have been told to buy PE Design 10 at £999 which will sort this out but I cannot afford it. Are there any other pieces of software i can use or if there somewhere else i can get my designs. I have attached photos, the red flower is the lower stitch count, the green and red flower is the original design. Thanks Wayne
  2. For this operation used free machine embroidery software My Editor. To show you how to change the size of a machine embroidery design without changing the number of stitches in it, we are going to use this lovely horse’s head. Note the original stitch count in the lower left corner of the window. Find a Scale design icon on the screen left and click on it. You can scale your design in two slightly different ways. The first way is to change the size of a design by X percent: The second is to manually enter the height and width values in cm: Unless the image is skewed in the first place, don’t forget to check the “Keep proportions” box. This way, you’ll only need to change either the height or the width, and the correct aspect ratio will be maintained. Now, press OK. Note that the number of embroidery stitches in the design in both cases stays the same. If you accidentally entered the wrong value, just undo it by pressing Ctrl + Z on your keyboard. Having made all the alterations, Select File > Save as and store your resized design somewhere on your computer. Keep in mind that it is generally not recommended to scale your embroidery designs by more than 5%. Used Stay Wild machine embroidery design
  3. This is my second email with the same question. Please respond. The embroidery design titles "Mickey Mouse, Pluto and Donald Duck" comes in two sizes. Can you please tell me the stitch count of each size? I would like to order this but must know the stitch count before placing the order. Thank you
  4. I purchased Olaf embroidery design earlier this year. Is it possible to have you make me one that is 2.5\" tall & if yes, what would be the cost? Have a customer that wants lettering with it but he needs to be smaller to fit on shirt. I cannot get the stitch count to reduce & the outline turns into a blob when reduced. Breaks thread, also makes a mess on back. Puckering badly. Let me know if you can help.
  5. There are several ways to estimate stitch count, you can look at the design and guess, or you can place a grid over the embroidery design and calculate the areas and stitch types. Grid Estimating Technique Below you will find a grid system composed of Ѕ” X Ѕ” blocks, along with a 5” linear ruler. (The ruler will be used for runs and satins.) Obtain a clear acetate sheet used for overhead projector presentations (8 Ѕ” X 11”), available from most Office Supply Stores and print out the measuring tool, so you can apply it as per the instructions of this article. Use a separate ruler to measure the blocks and verify that they are truly Ѕ” X Ѕ”. It’s possible that the grid sheet was inadvertently re-sized during printing or downloading. Most of the various grids found online use the same size blocks. However, they tend to differ when it comes to assigning fill stitch coverage values to those blocks. Thus, it’s important to understand that different software systems may come up with different coverage values such as density. The worldwide standard for density is 4.0 pts which is equivalent to 63.5 spi (stitches per inch). Theoretically this is the master density setting for all systems, but not necessarily. Plus, there are various auto-compensation functions which change the density based on user-inputs such as fabric type. Therefore, it’s important that you run a quick test of your own. I found that on the Tajima DG/ML by Pulse Microsystems software the value for a Ѕ” X Ѕ” square is approximately 300 stitches, using embroidery fill pattern 1 (the default). Realize too, that different fill patterns will give different stitch counts. Using this concept you can continue your calculations with the end result looking like this: FILL STITCHES (Density of 63.5 spi) 1” Square Area = 1000 stitches 200 stitches for underlay = 1200 Ѕ” Square Area = 300 stitches 150 stitches for underlay = 450 ј” Square Area = 100 stitches 100 stitches for underlay = 200 The graphic above is a ZOOMED IN view of a 1” long satin column with a density setting of 63.5 spi that I created. If you count the endpoints on either side of the column they add up to 64 per side – which adds up to 128 stitches total, as it takes two needle penetrations to make a stitch. (Said another way, a column of stitches is made up of two parts, the stitch and the return.) To be conservative, I use 150 stitches per linear inch in my estimates, rather than 128. You may feel more comfortable going as high as 200 stitches. You should end up with the following results: SATIN STITCHES (Density of 63.5 spi ) 1 Linear Inch = 150 stitches 50 stitches for underlay 200 stitches Ѕ Linear Inch = 75 stitches 25 stitches for underlay 100 stitches Run stitch estimation uses the same concepts as satin's. Set up a straight run segment that is five to six inches long. Measure the number of stitches that make up the segment. You should find that 1 linear inch has approximately 12 stitches, depending upon the run stitch length setting, in this case 3 mm. It can be hard to predict what run stitch length setting will be used on any given design, plus runs can be tricky as it may be necessary to double-back in some places, I use a conservative number of 20 stitches per linear inch. RUN STITCHES 1 Linear Inch = 20 stitches Depending on the amount of color changes I will add 200 stitches per color change. Please note that if you go over and it turns out to be less you may be able to refund the customer the difference or give them a discount, but do not ask them for more money cause your guess work was out. They won't like this too much. I would practice with this until you get a feel for machine embroidery designs. Author: Frank Profokator
  6. Since working with Tajima Pulse, some designs do not carry all the .PXF stitch information from the program to the machine when output to the spoiler. If I have worked with a design that I have done a stitch to outline transformation on, or taken a stock design and added text that I have modified via the Properties options, or specifically, done both, I find that the stitch count drops by a significant amount. I would say by 1k on a 14k design for instance, with 14k showing in the program and only 13k transferred to the machine. This particularly happens if I beef up the text for a better result. I have to save the design as a .DST and enter it from a floppy drive to get the full stitch count. My question is: Is there any way to correct for this, some option I'm not checking, or is this a program quirk and I just have to live with it. I have some customer designs that simply refuse to load from the serial cable option, which means that if my drive quits working I'd be SOL with that design. What's the fix?
