Hi vectorialized mates :)

Does anyone know an embroidery software that accepts vectorialized
files like .ai or .eps?

It's a mess to have a file in vectors, convert it in raster and then
re-draw it with the embroidery software.

Thanks :)

Re: Vectorial files and embroidery software?
I haven't seen an embroidery generator that does a great job on any file
format yet. You typically have to indicate what stitch density, direction,
pattern, size and may other parameters for each section to get a decent
pattern. This means redrawing or at least redoing 90% of each of the
sections parameters.

Hello.
in my experience PE-Design isn't very professional, so i was looking
another tool. As you said everything we have to redo the 90%..okay..but
can you suggest to me at least a good professional software?

People speak well of Wilcom and of Tajima.

Thanks!

Corel and Wilcom together have a package, Corel DraWings, that=20
combines CorelDraw and Wilcom's DecoStudio embroidery program, for a=20
list price of US$1995.

I was just at a presentation by Corel where they briefly mentioned=20
their embroidery product, but I can't find it on the Corel website.

I've also never seen anyone offering to demonstrate it live anywhere.

Re: Vectorial files and embroidery software?
What level of Wilcom would that be though?

I saw a quick demo of Corel at a show a few years ago and it looked nice but
didn't view long enough to see what it really put out or ease of use. After
purchasing their drawing products years ago I would approach very
aprehensively. The menus were done by muddleheads and had no user layout
smoothness.
