Re: Horizon Link Acufil

Lynne Dean
 

Hi Pat
I saw your original question and was interested in any responses. Have not used my Acufil for a while as on a mission to clear my sewing room of unfinished projects. I’m nearly done with a lengthy project and next on the list needs all over stippling so will be getting my head round Acufil again. Will have a play around and see if I can use any of my purchased designs in the calculator. From memory I think the software uses .jpx files, but my memory isn’t great these days.

Hi there, I live in Transylvania county.. south east of Asheville, near Brevard..lots of waterfalls and very beautiful. BUT no Janome dealers close. The one in Asheville is Bernina very focused ..
I hope Pat is able to format the USB's in her 15000. I just formatted some USB's , and it is so easy...First I have found using USB's with 2-16 GB are best..

Maybe  the 32 GB with the new  3.00 version, that I just put on my machine will now work.  QUESTION :   Does anyone have ideas on this?
First insert a USB into slot, & turn on your machine go to embroidery mode. Second, tap to SET with the little wrench sign scroll down to find page 5/5.
The Format is shown there. Follow directions to format ..remember if you have anything on a USB it will be erased. 
Does any have good results using a certain size USB ? 
I have to use a CD reader plugged into the computer to transfer designs, first to the  computer ( I'm trying to learn files) then put them on a USB. I wish there were a better way. Thanks, Elizabeth Mccall, Pisgah Forest, NC

To format a USB you should find the info on your machine under the Settings tab. Open it and look at the Embroidery settings. You may have to change pages to find the Format area. Put a blank USB stick in the machine before you turn it on. Then find Settings, Embroidery, Format. This should be in your owners manual also so look at the Settings info probably near the front of the book. I am not where I can look at a manual. Sorry.

Yes, it you format a USB that has designs on it, you lose them so be sure you have them stored elsewhere. When the USB is formatted, it puts a folder on it where the machine looks for designs and where you will copy/paste them to from your computer. Only put copies of designs on the USB.  Only use a 2gb or less stick.  Anything outside the folder will not be "seen" by the machine.  The machine looks at ALL the designs in the folder when you first open it on the machine. The more designs you have on the stick, the longer it takes to open and let you find what you are after. So that is why you should only put a few at a time in the USBs folder.  Stitch them, or remove them... Then put other designs on it.

Hope this helps. I am not sure how the WiFi features work. Maybe someone else can help with that.  Reading your manual is also a good idea and there is help on the Janome website under the Learning tab if you don't see info here.

Happy stitching!

I saw your question when you first asked, but I don’t have any clear idea of what it is you want to do with the “outside designs” you mentioned. Are they quilting motifs, embroidered designs, pre-made stipples, etc, you need to be more specific.
Acufil has two main functions. One is to create stipple fills to fit a specific design area; the other is to use quilting motifs to create a layout that can be used on a specific size project. It’s all based on the AQS22 hoop size.
Also, if you have the 15000 app often mentioned in this group, Diane does some very good explanations of ways to use Acufil and most likely you will find your answer there. If you haven’t purchased the app yet, you should!

I had purchased eq8 through their website for whatever the regular price was at the time. I think I used the online chat (message me button bottom right) because I had a question and she gave me a bit off the regular price. I installed it on my pc. 

Then in I decided to switch completely to a Mac. I am using VMware on it to run Digitizer but decided it was worth the $25 migration fee to get a license for my Mac and installed that. Works like a charm. 

I think I'm allowed to use one installation on a pc and one on a Mac or both on the Mac but I only have it installed on the Mac right now. I quit the pc cold turkey. 

You might want want to email them and tell them what you have and ask how to go about getting what you need. Their customer support is wonderful.

Thank you Cheryl and Tracy,

I looked at the manual and things are becoming clearer now.  I am coming from a Viking Designer SE where the motherboard went bad and I figured out how to convert all my patterns to JEF format, but was taken by surprise by the need to format the stick.  It is comforting to know if I'm really stuck the ladies in this group are so friendly and willing to help.  Many thanks.  I appreciate your support.  I hope someday in the future I can play the kindness forward.

No, they are beads, that when you iron them, they become flat and fused together, just like glass.

Hi Everyone:  I am starting to make an applique lighthouse quilt and the designer says she used glass fusible beads for the window.  As hard as I've tried, I cannot find them anywhere.  I searched Amazon, JoAnn's, Michaels and Fire Mountain Gems.  

I've never even used them before.

Any hints, suggestions?

Swarovski has Hotfix Rhinestones that come in various sizes and shapes and have beautiful “fire” in them. As I understand they cut their stones with more facets to give the effect. It is best to use a applicator tool to apply them but it can be done with an iron.

There is a Janome dealer in Knoxville and I think the same people also have a store in Sevierville.  That might be a lot closer for you, especially Sevierville.  I've bought machines from them in the past and they are very good.  It's called Sew-N-Vac Superstore.  There is a quilt shop in Kingsport called Heavenly Stitches.  I take my machine there to be serviced and I can highly recommend them.  They are a Janome dealer and their service guy is very good.  I think he can work on just about anything.  They are very reasonably priced as well.  There's a Janome dealer called Kingsport SewVac that is in the same town, but I don't know anything about them.  Anyway, if you don't mind coming to East Tennessee, you will have a choice of several places.

The information is old, but still applies. The Revert and PurRec tools are available in all versions of Digitizer.

Re: MBX ERROR MESSAGE

Took me a long time to discover the purge recovery  and delete backup.  But it only takes 1 file in either and it can cause the exception error.  I purge and delete every time I close the program and before starting it.  I’ve also found that starting the program with the computer offline is better, it loads quicker (probably less memory in use so more memory for MBX to use) but the security programs don’t have a problem with it then.  I go online if I want to after it’s loaded.  

Also the other one that has caused me exception errors is working in a reduced window, the program is more stable in the full window.
