Re: converting large designs to fit our hoops

Sherry Martin

I have a program called embird that I downloaded from the internet. In that program you can set up custom hoop sizes. I haven't tried it yet to see if it will work for the 12000 hoops.

It is a program kind of inbetween a really expensive program and the software that comes with the machine. You can do more editing than comes with machine, convert designs from other formats, buy extra text fonts,etc. It also has an upgrade that is a digitizing program but that is something I won't ever do, so the basic program works really good for me.

The best solution to your design conversion problem would be Janome's new Digitizer MBX. However it's not yet available to all dealers, and that's overkill if you don't want to create your own designs. That digitizing software comes from Wilcom, and they also have a free conversion program:

To convert your designs with TrueSizer follow these steps:
1. Download and install TrueSizer e2. Open it when done.

2. Open one of your PES designs using "File -> Open".

3. Use the measuring tool (Type M) to get the overall size of your design. If necessary, rotate the design using the rotate tool on the top toolbar.

4. Use "File -> Save As" to open the file save dialog. Change the format at the bottom to "Janome JEF".

5. Click the "Options" button in the bottom right corner and select either the MB-4 machine. That will give you the M1 hoop which is 200 x 240mm (about 8" x 10").

6. When you open the design in HorizonLink, the hoop will be changed to the size necessary to stitch it on the 12000. When opening the design in your machine, pay close attention to the hoop displayed on the screen and make sure you use that hoop.

If you have a design that is larger than the M1 hoop this process won't work. For the moment only Digitizer MBX will do what you need. Eventually the 3rd party conversion programs will be updated, but for now this is your best option.
