embroidery machine design format
five years ago, when I began my crossover as an educator in the commercial industry to the home industry, I must admit I was just a little overwhelmed. After learning a dozen programs commercially, the home market had a couple dozen more to digest, most confusing was all the different file formats. Commercially when we created and sold a digitized design, we had our software’s native format and then gave the customer that (if they owned the same program) or a .dst/.exp format, and that was it! The home industry had a native format for each program and then machine formats in varying versions for all the different brands of machine. I went from providing at the most 3 formats to creating what I call the Top Eleven. This is what my list looks like now .emb, .dst, .exp, .art, .hus, .jef, .pes, .shv, .vip, .vp3, .xxx.
