The JBX format is yet another variant of JEF. It originated with the 12000 and Digitizer MBX. JBX files have the option of including an image, which is displayed on the machine under the design. The idea is that it lets you see what the design will look like on whatever image you provide. I doubt this is used much, but the JBX format is also used by the 12000 and up to save designs from the machine to USB or computer. AcuFil uses that format, so it apparently has provision for more data than just an image file.

I’m so glad to see Jim Stutsman mention about choosing Jef+ over Jef files. I noticed this and really wondered which was the better choice. Isn’t there also one with an x in it that work for Janome Horizon 15000?

I have the customize CD as well as a notebook of instructions for it.  I would be most happy to give it to the person asking about it.  I loved my 11,000 but it finally died and I now have the 500e.  If anyone would like it just email me. You can have it for just the postage to send.  I live near Atlanta.

Another thing I’d like to mention about JEF+ is that many digitizers sell multi format designs that include a JEF+ along with a JEF. They are never true JEF+ files, and when I get one I always look out of curiosity! A true JEF+ will be composed of parts made out of two or more JEF designs and each design will remain as separate designs, so that they are ‘editable’. 
On our newer Janome machines we create JEF+ when we design in either our machines edit mode and in the software programs that comes with the machine, Horizon Link, Acutools etc. 
The machine always saves a new layout as JEF+, in the programs we have a choice to save as JEF or JEF+. I always choose JEF+ to maintain the separate parts.

When reading the 11Heaven issues is is important to realize that they were written more than 10 years ago at a time when the 11000 was Janome's top line machine. This business has changed a lot since then, and will continue to change, so the information in those issues should be considered valid ONLY for the 11000 and 11000se.

The JEF+ format was new with the 11000. It DID NOT replace the JEF format, but was intended ONLY to be used to take designs out of the machine and back to the computer. Many of the 3rd party translation programs assumed that JEF+ was required for designs in the largest hoop, which muddied the water further. With the introduction of AcuFil the JEF+ format was modified again, to retain information necessary for resizing quilting. Your 500e is probably using some of the internal software written for the 11000, and thus still uses the JEF+ format. Again realize that when the 11000 was top we had no idea the 500e, or even the 15000 was coming.

Customizer 11000 was included on a CD with both the Memory Craft 11000 and the 11000se. It was never offered for sale, but your dealer might be able to order it as a replacement part.


MC11000 11 Heaven question

Hi Jim,

Can you please explain this as it applies to current embroidery machines? 
“If you operate entirely within the realm of Janome software, this is not that big of a deal. Janome uses the JEF+ format only within the Memory Craft 11000 machine. It's a special variant of the JEF format, which allows for repeated editing of any arrangement that you build and save from the EDIT screen. This feature was much requested for the 10000 and its various descendants, so Janome built it into the 11000.”

I have the 500e and I have noticed that the Embroidery Editor software that comes with it, saves in JEF+.

Thanks,
Roberta in FL

Hi Jim,

I have heard of Customizer software, but I never owned it. Was it originally sold with the 11000? I have the 11000se.

Thanks,

I would like to make a clutch purse using puffy foam on my Janome 15000. Any advice, I have never used puffy foam. Are there instructions somewhere?
Thank you,

Thank you Jim for sending the newsletters.  I just opened three to preview and I’m looking forward to reading/reviewing each pdf.  Just the three pdfs offer interesting projects, a lot of  information, and user friendly info.

I have just uploaded 48 issues of our Memory Craft 11000 newsletter, 11Heaven, to the files section: 11Heaven 48 files

You can probably find everything you need to know about your machine there. One caveat - Some of the issues may reference download files. The links for those downloads WILL NOT WORK. I have not gone through all 48 issues to see what files are reference, but it's about 99% sure that I no longer have most of them.


Re: MBX 5-using USB thumb drive

Roberta K
 

I use the same method. I copy my design onto my thumb drive in the embf folder. If you want to see the design you have to make sure you are looking at the correct tab on the machine's display as well. But as was mentioned, the manual gives really good instructions on this.

Also your manual should explain all of that about getting designs to your machine.  For years I have used a USB thumb drive to get my designs to the machine.  Take the drive preferably no larger than a 2 gig and format it the machine and then use your computer to put your designs into the embf file on the drive and then safely remove it and put into the machine before you turn it on.
