Re: Digitizing software

Kaye, it is my understanding that Janome America has agreed to continue support for MBX, and that dealers can submit orders for any new upgrades as they have always done. The difference will be JAI will only order any new versions to cover dealers customers requests. So there might be a time delay.  As for new versions, well that depends on Janome Tokyo, and they seem to wish to continue with MBX as their flagship digitising suite. Unfortunately I'm not privvy to the future development of MBX beyond the point agreed between JAI and Wilcom last October, so my hope is JAI honours the agreement and North American users of MBX will have access to any new MBX versions should they wish to continue using it.

Thanks Roberta,

I saw it in an article about purses on Craftsy, and remembered this conversation.

Hi Cas,

 

The Pellon product is a stabilizer for things like collars and cuffs. It is definitely not stiff enough for a purse.

That happens to me frequently.  I just try it again and eventually it finds it.  Also, I don’t know the machine has to be on the white edit screen for it to be found.  It has to be there to receive the file though, so maybe.

I set up my 15000 last night, so that it was wifi enabled. I have the black wifi sign in the top right of my screen.My 15000 is switched on and just about 4 feet from the router/PC.
Just went to the Emblink Tool in Horizon Link. Clicked the top left button - Connection Settings - clicked wifi button and search.
I just keep getting a message that says "No machine found"
Can anyone help me please?
Thanks so much.

Sue, try Bosal In-R-Form Plus which is made for totes and purses.  Suppose to be very good. Have some but haven't used as yet, there are different types, fusible and not fusible, Claire S.

can someone recommend a “batting” that is firmer than fusible fleece, but not rigid?  I like my purses to stay upright, not flop over, but still have some flexibility.  I tried In Control, but don’t remember if I liked it.  I do remember it being expensive, which is OK if it works!  Thanks.

You can send to the machine wirelessly using the EmbLink Tool in Horizon Link Suite. First click the circle icon in the top left corner and choose "Connection Settings". There you can set it for wireless, assuming that it finds your machine. Note that if you open this tool when the machine is not online, it may seem to hang for an extended period and you may get the "Not responding" when clicking on it. Once configured for WiFi, the program assumes the machine is always ready.

There are 2 ways to connect one is direct connect where you plug the cord into your machine and the computer at the same.  the cord comes with your machine and this was available in both the 12,000 and the 11,000 and the 15,000.  But you must set that up according to your manual.  The wifi is Ipad only unless you have a mac and not sure it even works with the mac computer because it isall tied in with the apps.  That is why when the 15,000 first came out about 5 years ago they included the mini ipad for the wifi connection.  Horizon link is a windows program.  You will probably have to use the direct connect like I explained or use a USB.  I know I hated the invest in the ipad because I am a wondows android gal but my theory is if you gonna spend the $$ on the car you have to put gas in it and in this case the machine vs wifi.  I did download the apps on my new ipad but honestly I probably will never use the option unless I use a design that is included with the ap.  I have viewed the videos on you tube, but they have not helped me at all they are all very basic.

If I remember correctly you can send wirelessly with Horizon Link which is windows based.

I believe the wifi is for an ipad. Not a windows computer. With your machine you should have received a card with a code for Itunes and that is where you download to your Ipad the acudesign and the rest of the apps. I am a windows person but had to invest in a mac ipad for my 15000 to use the wireless option with my machine.

Re: Digitizing software

I received a Floriani program as part of the package when I bought my 15000. She had discounted the machine and threw in the program which I believe was valued at over $1000. I had no idea of how to use it but knew I wanted to do embroidery. I was able to use it to embroider images online that were the right size and density. The manual was rather confusing for me as I am a visual learner. I finally found this wonderful website on YouTube of a fellow who posts all kinds of videos on how to use the program, plus how to digitize a design. The idea that most of us don’t even know what we don’t know is right on. I’m still very happy with the software, which upgrades for free, even though I have to use VMWare on my Mac, but it’s one of those things where you really have to get experience before you really know what you need. Having sewn for 55+ years, I was certain about the 15000.

I don't normally wade into discussions about Digitising software, but today I'm making an exception. The reason I don't wade in is because of my bias, I've owned several different digitising suites, Brothers embroidery suite, Pfaffs embroidery suite,  Husqvarna's software.  I now own  Floriani  FTC-U , Generation plus software, Embird basic + Studio, cross stitch, photo-stitch, iconizer, , Janome MBX version 5 ( I started with Janome Digitiser 10000, and upgraded) Wilcom's Hatch, Wilcom's Embroidery Studio version 3 and am looking at upgrading to ES4, . 
One thing I've realised about any software not just digitising software, is the user interface has to suit the end user, if it doesn't learning how to get the best from any program will be an uphill struggle. I'm an end user that prefers not to have to leave my digitising screen in order to export to a stitch format, edit stitches, create multi hoop layouts, write to card or usb, I prefer to handle everything in a one screen setting, not have to jump to an editor or manager. Although Janome digitiser 10000 was very limited, and I used Embird at the same time, it was the Janome digitiser that made me actually learn two things. Firstly it forced me to be inventive, to experiment and find ways to overcome the programs limitations and learn how to manually digitise. Secondly it taught me, it's not all the bells and whistles a program may or may not have, that makes an end user a good digitiser, but what an end user does with the tools provided.

I have the latest build of Embird, its still a good program, but for me and my user interface preferences, the Wilcom written programs are superb. Here is where I have to declare I beta test Wilcom software, their domestic and commercial packages. There was a tremendous leap forward in Janomes Digitiser Pro version 3, version 4 saw another huge leap forward, and version 5 flew skywards. I personally can't wait to see what MBX 5.5 has to offer. As for pricing, that is decided by Janome America, not Wilcom. Wilcom's own domestic software, a really nice user friendly software with the added bonus of excellent software support provided by Wilcom, is priced by Wilcom, and is affordable, it shares a similar user interface with the Bernina and Janome software.  Am I trying to sell it, no I am not, I couldn't give a monkeys which software folks buy, but I would say, ask yourselves do I like one screen applications, or do I prefer switching between modules. Am I prepared to put in the time, effort, commitment needed to learn to digitise manually, or would an auto digitiser suit my needs better.

Oops, I didn’t scroll down.  The Bosal In-R form does come in fusible. It is not fleece though so you would need to add a liner if you use it.

This is what was recommended to me

I think I used the white sew in.  I don’t think it comes in fusible.  It’s not fleece though, more like a thin foam.
