No one knows, but I wouldn't count on it. The 12000 was really the prototype for the 15000, so the hoops transferred. However the 15000 also came with almost all the hoops, so there were not many to buy. Feet will almost surely transfer, with the possible exception of dual feed since they could change that. But again, in a top line model most of the feet will likely be included.

Thank you for your response to my question. I had read the Janome Canada site and was curious about it. I currently have Digitizer v5 and find it much more difficult than MBX.

Hi Jim,
Regarding the possibility of a new high end machine coming out, do you think the accessories for the current 15000 will be compatible?

If you follow the well done blog by Janome Canada, the answer would appear to be yes. However the method outlined in that post involves connecting the iPad to a Windows computer and using that to extract the designs. The fact that a computer is involved pretty much cancels the advantage of using an iPad. There are two factors that make this a poor substitute:

  • iOS apps are "sandboxed", meaning that each app has their own directory for storing files. No other apps are allowed access. Some apps offer a "share" button that allows files to be sent to other apps, or even other computers via email, Air Drop (Mac), Dropbox, and other means. AcuEdit does not have such a button. In iOS 11 a "Files" app was added that allowed files to be stored in a way that multiple apps could use them. Janome does not support this in AcuEdit.
  • When you access the designs in AcuEdit through iTunes there are no icons or images to help you determine which is which. If you let AcuEdit assign file names automatically, you get meaningless file names constructed from the date and time the design was created. It's easier to just copy all the files and delete what you didn't want.
In September iOS will split into two operating systems: iOS 13 for iPhone and iPod Touch, and iPadOS for iPads. At that time it will be possible to physically plug in a USB drive to an iPad for file transfer. This will use the "Files" app mentioned above, and some programming will be required for existing apps to use the feature. Janome has traditionally updated software only to support new models. Software for older models is ignored once a replacement is out. A good example of this is the lack of a 64-bit USB driver for the original Customizer software. It effectively killed the ability to connect older machine to new computers via USB cable.

Janome's AcuDesign app can be used with older, non-WiFi models. However it's not free, it's still pretty buggy, and you are again back to using a computer to accomplish the iPad to USB transfer. For just managing designs take a look at StitchBuddy HD. It also does not have USB transfer, but that's because of Apple's current software. The author is a member of this list and will probably be doing an update to support an iPad-connected USB drive (Stimmt?)

Janome will be releasing a new top-line machine next month at Janome Institute. It will probably have WiFi, which they've made more or less standard. It will be interesting to see if they update their apps to support it, or possibly come out with new apps. For 90% of people who sew an iPad is enough computer, especially as they've gotten more and more powerful. Short of digitizing, just about everything can be done on an iPad. Windows computers, being commodity items, will always be cheaper than iPads, but the poor build quality of the cheap ones, the embedded trial software, and the ever-present malware makes them a short-term product that needs to be replaced often. There's also the issue of finding space in the sewing room to put the computer.

Question regarding Janome 11000SE.

2frederick@...
 

Can the Acuedit app be used with older, non wi-fi embroidery machines? I own a Janome 11000SE and 10001, and this looks like an easy way to transfer designs if it will work with these machines. 

Spanish Hemstitch

I have the 15000. Is there a way to create a Spanish hemstitch? I know that some brands have a special foot but I don't see one for the 15000.

Maureen,

I didn‘t follow all the replies to your posting, but an important info might be missing: You’re talking about „Windows 10 S“ which is the „Security“ edition of Windows, mostly for educational usage. As a consequence this version allows ONLY the installation of Microsoft App Store apps, and I‘m quite sure Janome‘s software is not available in the app store, but requires a legacy installation via download / CD and running a setup program.

Please double-check before making a decision...

Mattes

EDIT: It seems to be possible to switch off „S“ mode once, so desktop programs can be installed. But there‘s no way back ... Just google for „Windows 10 in S mode FAQ“ by Microsoft.

I am not familiar with that software.  It usually tells you the requirements for the software on the package.

Re: Windows 10 S

Jim Stutsman
 

The problem with cheap Windows laptops is that they are so underpowered that once you've booted Windows you've pretty much maxed it out. It's further complicated by the metric ton of "trial" software that suppliers paid the laptop maker to pre-install. $200 barely covers the cost of the screen and hard drive, so you don't have a lot to work with. I know nothing about the 3D Embroidery System, so I can't say whether it will work or not. Why not just try it? You've already lost $200, and if it doesn't work you can maybe return the computer.

Re: Windows 10 S

It should be fine however where you only have 4gb of ram your software may take time to open.  Be sure to keep the laptop just for your sewing. Most computers are 64gb and have 8gb of ram so yours may be slow, but it should work.

I have a Samsung computer. Would like to switch all my embroidery designs, to a laptop. I bought one today.
It has 4gb ram, 32 gb. But it has Windows 10 S.  Can this be used with my embroidery designs, 
and my 15000?   Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I usually recommend on finding out what you need before you buy the computer, but in this case I think you’ll be OK. It’s no powerhouse, but it should be fine with your Janome software.

Re: JEF + ?

Jim Stutsman
 

The JEF+ format originated with the Memory Craft 11000. As the plus suggests, it was an extension to the JEF format. Janome's intent was to use JEF+ only for files saved from the machine itself. The extra data was to be used so you could edit a design, save it, then open it later and change the edits. Unfortunately they never shared anything about the format with anyone outside the company, so third-party companies like Embird had to reverse-engineer the format. They mistakenly believed that the JEF+ format was required for designs that used the then-new hoops larger than 5 x 7. Because they had to guess what the new fields in the JEF+ format were used for, the early conversions were hit and miss. Janome also used the JEF+ format to embed information for AcuFil quilting. With the 12000 and later models they switched to yet another format, JPX. Like JEF+, JPX is used for designs stored from the machine to USB, and also for AcuFil. The later versions of Janome's Digitizer also use JPX as the default export format. JPX has provision for storing an image that can be displayed on the machine screen behind the design. It's an interesting feature, but seldom used.
