Digitizing for Different Hoops

I want to digitize a design and save it for different hoop sizes – 4×4, 5×7, 6×10, but not have to re-digitize each time.  How would I do that?  I have been trying to use transform, but my work space doesn’t get bigger when I change the hoop size so I don’t know  what I could be doing wrong. Lynn

Hi Lynn,
In Embird Studio, if you wish to change the hoop to a larger size after you’ve started digitising then you need to select your design and then go to Edit/Copy. Now go to Design/New. Select a bigger hoop size and then go to Edit/ Copy. Your design will now be in the larger hoop.
I hope that helps, Carolyn Keber Tutorials for Embird and PE Design

Transferring Designs to Machine Using Embird

If your Brother or Babylock machine is connected to your computer via a USB cable, you can send your designs directly to your machine using Embird, just the same way as you would if you were writing designs to a USB stick.
First make sure your machine is on, then with the design selected, right mouse click and choose Input/output operations/USB stick. Embird “sees” the machine as another drive so that’s why you use the same command. Then just write the files to that drive. It’s that easy… 🙂

Sfumato Stitch

Hello, I have bernina digitizing software and I am interested in Embird  Sfumato Stitch.  Can Sfumato Stitch run on its own?  Could I  then  save my designs in another format like PES, import them into my original Bernina Artista  software and save to ART for stitch out?

Hi Lauretta,

Sfumato Stitch can’t be used independently from Embird, sorry. As with all Embird plug-ins, you need to have the basic Embird program registered first, before you can purchase and use plug-ins. However, if you have both Embird and Sfumato (part of Studio), you would be able to save a design created in Sfumato to PES, then convert to ART in your Bernina software.

3D Reader/Writer Box with Windows 8

Hi all,
My XP computer died and I have a new Windows 8 computer. I use 3D organiser and a reader/writer box to transfer designs to my machine, I use Embird for everything else. Have installed both the 3D and Embird and both are working fine but am not able to transfer designs to the machine as the message tells me that there is no reader/writer box installed. Have searched for drivers,found a few but none solve the problem. Anyone out there with a fix for me before give up.

no communication between 5D software and Ruby sewing machine

I recently purchased a Ruby sewing machine and 5D embroidery software. I installed things according to the directions and activated my dongle. The first time I tried to send a design from the 5D software to the Ruby via the USB cable, I am being told “Communication Module not found on the machine” and I cannot do the transfer. I then resort to copying the design to a jump drive and getting the design from the jump drive to the Ruby that way. Anyone know why I can’t use the USB direct to do the Send1

Control Panel

PLEASE HELP!!

I have an older model Customizing Program in which I have lost the controls for lettering and shapes(I can still see the design and edit tab), from the control panel. I know I clicked the wrong thing and they just went away, but I can not bring them back. I am using the Customizing Embroidery System 5 on an XP machine. Please tell me how to get them back.
