Problems with the card read
Gives the card a “beep” when it is done in the best embroidery machine? It would be that the embroidery range of the files (or one or more files) on the card does not match the embroidery range of your embroidery machine. You must enroll then in PE-Lite program all the files you want to transfer to verify the card size (10 x 10 or 13 x 18). If you can re-write on the card, the files modified this.

How to create an embroidery file from a drawing/picture?
Choose an image and make sure you can find it, for example, the folder “My Documents / My Pictures” on your computer.
Run the PE design Lite program.
First, you decide on which format you are going to work (100 x 100 mm or 130 x 180 mm, depending on what can your embroidery machine). In the top menu bar, select “option”, “features page design.” Here you choose the correct size.
Step 1: In the top menu bar, select the option “image input file”. For example, select a bitmap file from your folder “My Documents / My Pictures.” Ensure beforehand that this is a manifest file with precise contours/lines and planes. For example, you can edit the file in Paint.
With pictures, it will succeed, but you will get a different kind of embroidery.
Step 2: the imported graphic, you can pull out or push by dragging the corner with your mouse. Make sure the image fits itself in the embroidery area (10 x 10 or 13 x 18 cm). The outer lines of the imported file (red lines) must not fall outside the embroidery area.
Step 3: In the left menu, select the magic wand (= bottom picture). This is “automatic punch.” The program now shows a box of different options out of place, “view results” and “Display original”. When “display result” you can play around with different buttons. There are the following possibilities: maximum number of colors, type of color chart, showing outlines, zoom, omit color, noise reduction and segmentation sensitivity (for the latter two the instructions on p.23). By clicking on the “back button, ” you can see how the pattern will look out. The different settings produce different effects and, for example, more or less detail. Play along here until you are satisfied (click between always on “again”). By clicking the pad itself, you can remove or add parts. The shaded areas are not embroidered. Compare the results between the original pattern (display printable document rendering results).
Close the window by clicking “finish”.
Step 4: Save the pattern. It is now a PES file. Original (bitmap) is still under there. It is more convenient first to take a blank page and the stored PES pattern there to ask again before proceeding.
Step 5: Get a “realistic sample” or “example” by clicking the top menu bar on the appropriate button (most right button and one after right button). If you want to see better, you should write the pattern to the card and preview embroidery.
The program distributes randomly stop stabbing or satin stabbing the different components. The embroidery direction is arbitrarily determined by the “magic wand.”
If you are not satisfied with this division in the pattern, you can do “manual” adjustments PE design Lite.
How do I manually using PE-Design Lite my embroidery file better?
Going to have this, proceed as follows, opened after the PES pattern editing.
Step 1: Click the top menu bar on “check sewing order” (third from right). Among the various colors is an upright cross in a square. If you click on it, you will see all the elements of one color (for example. 1-2, 1-2, 1-3, etc .; after that 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, etc.). By clicking on one element is active (red dotted line). When you click “Cancel” (this seems strange, but it’s true).
Step 2: The selected item will remain active in the embroidery pattern. You will see a rectangular shape with black squares on the corners and mid-lines. Top left, you can now see if this part is sewn with the fill stitch or satin stitch. Optionally, you change it. If you want, you can also customize the color still.
Step 3: In the top menu bar, then click “Setting sewing properties” on (4th from right). In the window that will open (field sew “), you can change some settings (for the active part of the pattern):
– “With reinforcement.” Depending on the model you need on or off (= click the checkmark making it go away). Often, it is better at small plates not to use any stabilizer. This is viz. A kind embroidered layer. At large areas is strengthening beautiful. It prevents pull.
– The sewing density is to adjust.
– The sewing direction is customizable: constant (and thereby choose a course) or variable (the program determines a direction that usually go with the pattern piece to sew). Contours are generally the best in a satin stitch with a variable course. Large surfaces are best for too long with a stop stitch sewn else floats (= loose wires between the stabbing) are.
For every sewing part, repeat steps one / m3.
If you can still play all the parts optimized in this way with the sewing order. A small eye can be lost in a big plane as the first embroidered, while the beautiful comes out as the last is embroidered. That includes contour lines. The 3rd button from the right (= determination sewing order) allows you to adjust the colored. You may even decide that parts of the same color yet are embroidered at a different time.
