The digitizing process can also start from drawings created in this application.

Smart Design

Smart Design

Smart design tool accelerates the designs creation and editing tasks. It allows to create an embroidery object with a selected fill style with a simple click on a vector object.

It also offers the fastest way to create embroidery objects with a given fill style when digitizing on raster images.

In addition, smart design tool can be used on editing to convert between different object types with a single click.

Object's shape Editing

Object's shape can be fully edited. All the geometric elements like nodes, holes, curves, etc. can be freely moved, added or deleted. Objects can also be scaled and rotated graphically or using precise tools.

The whole geometric editing process is comfortable and intuitive. For embroidery objects and inmediately upon changes, Stitch Era re-process the modified object to generate the stitches according to the new shape.

Objects Editing Geometrically

Object's fill style editing

Embroidery objects can be filled with different stitches styles, and each style can be adjusted according to user preference by editing the fill style properties.

Once filling properties of each object are specified, they can be changed as much as necessary to get the expected result.

Stitch Era automatically recalculates the object's stitches to reflect the changes made to its fill properties.

  • change the stitch type
  • move stitch end
  • delete stitches
  • add stitches
  • etc
