Main Characteristics (Click here for a detailed table) 

·          Possibility of opening several windows (patterns or icons) at a time and using all the Windows ® printing and screen resolutions.

·          Direct access to all the most frequently used functions through icons.

·          Very simplified handling, owing to easy digitising and editing procedures used.

·          Powerful editing functions which allow (depending on level): Moving, insertion or deletion of stitches. Copying or deletion of parts of the pattern. Merge or resize patterns. Change stitch density, carry out rotations or mirrors of the pattern or parts thereof. Insertion or deletion of functions at any point of the pattern, etc.

·          Text generation with easy-to-handle lettering, with a large number of available fonts.

·          Possibility of using images from Twain compatible peripherals (scanner, digital camera, etc.) or any image file as background.

·          Possibility of doing zoom, screen scrolling, etc. during any other operation.

·          On screen embroidery simulation (Virtual View) with fabrics or caps as background if desired.

·           Reading of multiple floppy disk formats (Barudan FDR, Barudan FMC, Happy, Melco DOS (Exp), Old Melco (Exp), Pfaff, Tajima, Toyota, Pfaff, ZSK, etc.,) for the introduction of patterns from any source.

·          Use of any of the tape readers used in embroidery machines.

·          Imports / Exports embroidery files in many formats.

·          Storing of patterns on hard disk, allowing an appropriate classification as well as visualization of saved patterns for easy retrieval.

·          Writing of patterns on the most usual disk formats (Barudan FDR, Barudan FMC, Melco DOS (Exp), Old Melco (Exp), Pfaff, Tajima, ZSK) making it compatible with practically all machines on the market.

·          Direct connection to embroidery machines, replacing tape readers or original disk driver units.

·          Multiple floppy utilities: format, duplication, entire loading, pattern(s) deletion, etc.

·          Multiple information on the pattern: dimensions, stitch statistics, thread consumption, embroidery time, command sequence, etc.

 FEATURES OF DCII AND DCI DIGITIZING LEVELS

  • User-friendly on-screen digitising system.

  • Automatic outline detection on background images (Auto-outline).

  • Possibility of changing the digitised shapes at any time (outlines, runs, etc.), as well as the stitch generation parameters (density, stitch length, fill effects, etc.) without altering the original quality.

  • Automatic generation of underlay stitches, lock stitches, trimmers, etc.

  • Automatic generation of all stitch layers required for appliqué embroidering. (Auto-appliqué). 

  • The Background menu allows to import any type of image file or to acquire it through the scanner, to place it in the screen and to digitise using it as reference. If it is necessary, you can scale or rotate the original image to adjust it to the real necessities. To facilitate the digitalisation, you can also modify the contrast, the bright or the color of the image, or to show it in grey scale or just the shape.

  •  When pressing the Digitising icon, the tools by means of which the lines or contours are introduced are shown. The program will create automatically the stitches. You have only to choose the stitch type, the tool and the method and in few seconds you will have a block of stitches that will be able to include backstitching, satin or fill stitches. Each one in very varied ways in function of the selected parameters.

  •  The run stitch can be simple, triple or quintuple (Bean stitch), triangular, in “E”, parallel, or to fill a zone with run stitches.... The satin, normal, divided automatically according to longitude (" Auto-split"), on digitised or programmed blocks(" User-split", " Program-split"), irregular (" Jagged ").... The fill stitches, can be chosen among a wide palette; mixed with other effects can produce infinite variations.

  •  It is always possible to edit the previously digitised areas, moving or adding points, or modifying the input or output points.  You can also change any parameter and regenerate the stitches to get a different effect or reuse the area with other parameters. To enlarge, reduce, or change the density, to rotate, move..., everything is made with a great simplicity.

 SUMMARY

 Combining editing and digitising features, many advantages are readily obtained: 

  • Reuse of motifs in a pattern, or in other patterns, without the need for repunching. You will even be able to create your own catalogues with old patterns.

  • Acceptation of work on any type of floppy, without the need to depend on external conversions.

  • Generation of texts to be directly embroidered or included in other patterns.

  • Instant correction of embroidery problems, such as thread breakages, lack of lock stitches, inadequate densities or incorrect functions, etc., without the need for outside interventions, and thus avoiding unnecessary breaks in production.

  • Storing of file patterns in a system of easy access and retrieval.

  • Better quotation for work, as pattern characteristics are known quickly and a priori: size, stitches, color changes, stops, thread consumption, embroidery time, etc.

  • Reduction of punching costs.

  • Reduction of delivery time.

  • Complete independence from external punching centres.

  • Total discretion about patterns and clients
