Question regarding Janome 11000SE.

Sorry flipping spell check!  YOU CAN SAVE to Dropbox and wifi USB etc.  I read it before sending and thought it was ok but obviously spell check out extra letters in

Acudesign is very powerful, you can select hoops for just about all the Janome machines and lots of other brands, the edge cutters  and a couple of generic hoops.  You can’t save to a wifi USB or Dropbox or box, as well as the USBs for the iPad (double ended).  I was using Acudesign with my 350e and 12000 long before I got my 15000.

Don't you have to select the hoop.  The 11,000SE has different hoops.

Virginia the 11000 is not wireless but machines that are not wireless can use some of the apps. They would need to transfer in different ways. From AcuDesign you can transfer to a lightening USB stick. AcuEdit you can conbect the ipad to the pc and use iTunes.

With AcuDesign you can transfer to a lightening USB by sandisc or a wireless USB. Then you would not need to use the computer. 

In AcuEdit you can name your designs in the settings of the app making it easier to see them if you use the iTunes way of transfer.

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.

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.
