Re: Download designs to MAC

Mattes is right about AcuEdit being a closed system. Janome has engineered it to be a kind of software dongle. If you don't own a 15000 (or now S9), you can do little with it. It's possible to extract the designs you have saved in it using iTunes and cabling your iPad to your computer. You can also send designs to AcuEdit the same way, but this is not a convenient way to transfer files.

Roberta, I have the 15000 and the 11000 updated to v.3.10. To the best of my knowledge, the bobbin cases for the 15000 fit the 11000 and vice versa. 

Here’s an ad from a Janome dealer that says it fits both, and some other Janome machines, too:

Oiling my 500e

Hello all, 
My Janome 500e has been idle and covered with its plastic cover for 1 full year. Should I consider oiling it or any other precautionary care before starting her up? 
Thanks.

Hi Linda,

My specific question, I guess, would be if I’ve created a design in AcuEdit , can I move it into Stitch buddy so it will show up and be shared to my other iPad?
I have to admit that I‘m not very experienced with AcuEdit. Actually I have version v3.21.001 installed, but hardly use it at all. AcuEdit seems to run a very closed shop with regards to its designs: Other apps are not allowed to access its local storage and it provides neither any sharing option nor supports iCloud storage.

This having said the only way I would envision exporting designs out of AcuEdit is a transfer via your machine - unfortunately I cannot test it myself, maybe someone else can confirm or correct me?

Long story short: There is not a thing StitchBuddy could do to access AcuEdit‘s designs without Janome‘s app cooperating...

Hi Martie in CA
Here is the website page of the MC6600P.  It lists all the accessories that come with the machine and also optional ones that you can purchase.  You have a very good machine, but the Acufeed feet are very different from the machines that have a built-in system that are made today.
You really should talk to a dealer about the feet.  They didn’t used to be very expensive, but I’ve noticed all sorts of things went up considerable in price since COVID-19 came upon us.

There are several feet, the regular straight stitch foot, a foot that allows for zigzag and decorative stitches, a 1/4” foot and a stitch in the ditch foot.  I gave my machine to my daughter in law with all those feet minus the straight stitch foot (I wouldn’t have used it so didn’t buy it).  That machine is about 15 years old and still working like a trooper, with her children also using it to sew.

You will enjoy sewing on that machine and hopefully you find the feet that you need.

Actually, the 6600 was the first machine to use the built in Acufeed system.  This is the foot style that goes with it.

I bought a used 6600 P without feet.  I would like to find an even feed foot for the 6600.

Re: MC11000se

I don’t know if it would work with the 11000, but I would suggest if you’re going to mess with the tension on a bobbin case you buy another so that you have the correct tension in one and Mark accordingly.  No default setting for the case so difficult to return it to the correct position.  If I have a problem with the bobbin showing on top, I change the top tension, at least I can return it to default.  Personally it would be a last resort for me to mess with the bobbin tension.  


if you want a yellow dot I would suggest you ask a Janome dealer or email Janome and ask if it would work in your machine.

Hi all,

Can anyone here tell me if there is a yellow-dot bobbin case available for the MC11000se? And if so, what is the part number? It would be great if I could find one so I don’t have to mess with the tension on my red-dot bobbin case.

Thanks in advance,
Roberta in FL

Thanks..I’d never heard of your app until you and another person mentioned it.  My specific question, I guess, would be if I’ve created a design in AcuEdit , can I move it into Stitch buddy so it will show up and be shared to my other iPad?  That’s my big concern, since one is going to go out soon..

Thanks,
Linda

There is no need for any additional software to transfer embroideries to a USB pen drive: Simply drag 'n' drop with the macOS Finder will do. Unfortunately Janome machines are somehow picky about the USB folder structure and design location, so this PDF might help. StitchBuddy - as Jim mentioned - guides you selecting the correct location and is adding preview and editing capabilities to your Mac. There is a free trial available to check it out - and for transparency: I'm the developer of StitchBuddy...

Re: Download designs to MAC

Cheryl Paul
 

I just download everything I purchase on my MAC. If it needs to go to a Windows program, I look for it from Windows on the drive that the MAC is assigned to in that program and open it or copy it to the Windows side of things. However, for designs it is much easier to use Stitch Buddy, then you can open the file to see what the design is and copy it to your USB. It is really simple once you get used to doing this. I’ve never lost a beat by going to a MacBook over 10 years ago and have had much less frustration over all with my MacBook.

You’ve been given lots of coaching on this thread, hopefully you have fun with all of it. It does work.

A Janome dealer may even have some spare feet around from scrap machines.


Re: ISO 6600 Janome feet

Lyn Quine
 

You should contact a Janome dealer, the feet for the 6600P slide onto to the attachment on the back of the machine, it’s a very good walking foot.in the UK we have a j-shop on the Janome website where they show all the feet.  Not sure if you have that where you are in the world.  But I would first find a Janome dealer and contact them. Good luck it’s really is a great machine shame it doesn’t have all the feet.

StitchBuddy works great for getting designs on a USB on a Mac, and it does a whole lot more. Check it out here: https://www.stitchbuddy.de

I believe DIME has a software program for MAC.

Re: Download designs to MAC

Meridee Steele
 

Hello Carole
Yes I download designs to my MAC computer all the time and then transfer to USB to take to my Janome 12000. 
It’s very straightforward. Just download design, open the download and copy and paste the design to the USB. Saving to Dropbox is a good option too and just transfer by copy and paste from there. 
Good luck.
