Re: AcuSetter

Cat - N
 

I cannot imagine a method that would allow the iPad AcuSetter app 'TO' be used with a non-WiFi machine, since the iPad app communicates directly with, and receives the embroidery design directly FROM the WiFi enabled machine (the machine has to be in 'embroidery mode' as well), then sends the modified positioning directly back TO the embroidery machine.  Even with a non-Janome, WiFi enabled machine, both the AcuSetter iPad app AND the embroidery machine would NEED to be able to 'TALK' to each other, and I kind of cannot see something like that happening, since that is most likely a well guarded, 'proprietary' (secret) technology for Janome, especially considering that the iPad app is FREE.

I really do like the acuSetter app for the 15000.  But I also have a 12000.  Is there ANY way to use this app if you don't have a machine with wifi?

Re: Question about 14000

J Fraker
 

Thanks to everyone for all the info. I guess I'll keep my 12000 for now. I do love it. I really don't want to spend my limited sewing time learning how to use the WiFi. I wish someone would invent a machine that would just project the entire embroidery design onto the fabric. That would be the simplest way to get perfect placement. With all the technology we have nowadays, that shouldn't be so hard.

Janome.com has a machine comparison, so you can  run through the list and see what is important to you. I had the 12000 and now have the 15000.  My circle attachment and bias binders do not fit on the 15000 because of the different throat plate.  But they are interchangeable, so I purchased an extra throat plate, which is not expensive, so I can use those EXPENSIVE attachments on my 15000. Also, if you do  a lot of embroidery, the acuSetter app is wonderful, but I have not figured out a way I can use it without having  wifi enabled machine.  I'm hoping someone knows how so my sister in law can use it with her 12000.  If you have to have wifi on the machine to use the app, consider if that is important to you for that quick, perfect embroidery placement without messing with perfectly hooping your fabric.

I see what you mean now.  I did purchase 2 free designs today in Acudesign and they auto saved there and in my drop box, however the one I had purchased previously is no longer in Acudesign and just the title is in my dropbox but no designs.  Perhaps there has to be an update coming.  I do have an Ipad update today for 13.1.2.  I am doing that now.  Perhaps that will help.  What version do you have.  I have the Ipad Pro.

I don't know if this will be allowed through to the group, but to answer J Fraker, yes there is technology to do what you want with positioning designs on fabric in the hoop, but in a different brand(s) of machines.
Wifi is very easy to use. It just takes an Ipad and a good wifi connection.
Also, even the Horizon Link Embroidery Link tool can use a Wifi connection to send and receive designs from the machine.

It's not that I'm intimidated by the iPad, I just don't want to have to buy yet another gadget.  I actually don't have any problem with embroidery placement if I'm just stitching out a design.  I guess I should explain my problem a bit further.  I mostly like to quilt.  I have a nice longarm machine (not computerized), but I really hate standing there using it.  The method I use is to put the quilt on the longarm, stitch in the ditch around all the blocks which is way better than basting, then take it off and go to the embroidery machine.  I then hoop each block and quilt a design with my 12000.  The problem I have is that because of all the layers, it can be difficult to get it hooped perfectly straight.  I use the ASQ22 hoop which works really well, but I have to check each corner and sometimes manipulate the quilt a little and then check each corner again.  I can eventually get the design to stitch just where I want it, but it takes a lot of extra time.  If the whole quilting design were just projected onto the fabric, it would be really easy to rotate or reposition it a bit and avoid all that checking and re-checking the corners.  Hope all this makes sense.  I've looked at other brands, but I don't know of any that project the entire design onto the fabric.  I'm not sure I'd want another anyway.  I've been using Janome machines since way back when they were called New Home.  I did buy another brand one time, but didn't like it at all and went back to Janome.

Why not go the old fashion way and print out a template? That is what we use to do back in the 90's before wi fi and fancy software,  in fact many earlier Janome machines came with templates for us.

lol! I was just going to suggest a product from the dzgns (DIME) people! 
It's a projector that helps with alignment. 
It's a bit pricey, but a friend has it and she loves it.
Personally, I don't think the PAL laser light will accomplish as well what JFraker wants to do, especially with her bulky quilts. I have one of those too, and NEVER use it. I like the clothsetter far more. The ASQ22 hoop with the Clothsetter will be ideal for her quilting placement.

The Apple App review process is getting faster. I submitted ThreadBook 1.2 this morning and it's in the store this afternoon. The highlights of this update are:
  • Yet more bug fixes, which hopefully only happened to me
  • More brands - 163 so far
  • Browsing can now show threads arranged by number or color
  • Numbered browse listings are now in proper numeric order
  • Browse listings can now be printed, saved as PDF, emailed, etc.
  • Question & Answer section has more content, including some "How to" videos
  • Updates to the Library will now be nearly instant if you are connected to iCloud, within 24 hours if you're not
We've received several submissions for missing threads that we could not use, because they were variegated threads. As it stands today, the app cannot match to variegated threads. However now that the initial bumps and bugs are dealt with I am beginning another, bigger update that will include the ability to match variegated threads, as well as add them to the Library.

Many, many thanks to all the early adopters and testers who patiently endured bugs and shortcomings, while providing us with precious feedback!
