Platform Version 1.160

Hello, Embrilliance Platform Users,

Version 1.160 is rolling out officially, although it has been available for a while to test bugfixes.

Various MacOS versions had issues on some Macs, and those seem to be working fine now.

A minor adjustment was made to the StitchArtist applique so that User Defined colors now allow the middle (material) run to be a custom color.

That’s about all.

The Boss is Away

Yes, this started as a little bit of a joke when Brian went on vacation, but after digitizing and sewing it out, I just had to put this on a golf towel. I decided that “The Boss” has a lot of different meanings. I digitized this design using StitchArtist Level 2, and the font is called Elementary from Font Collection 1. This file is saved in the .be format so feel free to make changes, add different letters or both.

Version 1.156

Hi, All!

On some Win 10 4K systems we found that Windows would not accurately report the DPI, so we found another way for that, which seems to be working reasonably.

MacOs Sierra has been rather a bit buggy, and so has Apple XCode system to build software. We’ve had some difficulty, even taking things directly to Apple, only to hear things like this: Continue Reading…

Essentials Color Sort

Hi, friends,

The Essentials color sort utility has been updated in 1.155 with a new patent-pending process. It now can open a new view with the sorted file, and we’ve created another World’s first by making the color sort intelligently aware of stacked applique. We’ve got a new video up showing the basics.

AccuQuilt Go!, MacOS Sierra, Windows 10 high-DPI


It’s time for an Embrilliance Platform update, and we’re rolling version 1.154:

We have re-launched our partnership with AccuQuilt Go! That company makes many applique dies which work great with machine embroidery. The flexibility of our interactive designs, installed by our BX system allows for ease of use with those like never before. The launch will consist of two products: The Essentials ‘Go!’ Edition, which includes a normal copy of Essentials along with the GO! dies installers, projects and videos on the disc. Secondly, for owners of Embrilliance products now, the GO! applique die collection will be separately available. The Essentials ‘GO!’ Edition is available now from AccuQuilt.com or AccuQuilt retailers everywhere. It will be a short while getting the second version for Embrilliance owners up and out, and as soon as it’s available we’ll make that known as widely as possible.

OSX is now gone. It is called MacOS now. Sierra, the launch version of MacOS, has had a variety of bugs that widely affect Mac users. Apple has launched patches already which are helping considerably. We have also found some ways to use the new codebase from Apple to improve Sierra compatibility in this release.

Windows 10 runs on many of the new computers with high-DPI screens and this results in tiny text, so many are using the Scaling feature of the Display properties. Scaling programs may make text bigger, but everything is a little fuzzy in the process. We have added icon sets and DPI-awareness to the Windows version so that if you run your display scaled at 150% for example, you get a nice clean, clear program view. Now if only we can get things like web browsers to do it as well!

A Rant

Hi, folks. Time to vent. Over the years, our team has created many world’s firsts in embroidery. As of today, almost everything we have patented is being ‘borrowed’ by others: Continue Reading…
