Changing Machine Formats

Saturday, May 1, 2010
Different embroidery machines speak different languages. They have their own control commands for the various machine functions. Before you can stitch a design, it must be in a format which can be understood by the embroidery machine.

When you select a machine format, Wilcom ES Chenille translates the commands that were applied during digitizing into machine functions that can be understood by the particular machine. If you select a Chenille template when opening a design, the machine format will default to your current machine. You can change the machine format for a design at any time. Finished designs can be sent direct to Melco's CH1 chenille machine, or stitched on Tajima and Barudan chenille machines.

This section describes how to select a machine format for a design, output it in other formats, and customize machine formats to meet your machine’s requirements.
