How can I split a design in Essentials?

 

With Embrilliance Essentials you can split large designs into multiple pieces for included multi-position hoops for your machine. This enables you to stitch really big designs in your large multi-position hoop, filling your stitch area for each of the positions. Here are the steps shown in the video, for creating files for multi-position stitching. 

Click the icon that looks like a folder with colorful lines on it.

  1. Select your format in the environment menu.
  2. Look for a hoop that is described by the word “multi”
  3. Select that hoop, and click “apply”
  4. If your hoop is more vertical than horizontal and your design is the opposite, you may want to rotate it on-screen. Use the “rotate 90 degrees” checkbox for that. 
  5. Your hoop will be shown on-screen.
  6. Open your design into the hoop.
  7. Make any edits or additions that you would like to make.
  8. Save the design.
  9. The program automatically splits the design into pieces for your multi-position hoop.
  10. To see the pieces, you can open your Windows Explorer or Apple Finder.  You will see an editing file, the original design file, the multi-position pieces, and a text file. 
  11. The text file shows you the stitching information. Use this text file to know which  of the split file to use for each hoop position as you stitch the design.

Hello...

I downloaded the beta version, as suggested. I assume it loaded, but in my “About” info it still says 1.169, not the 1.169(1).

However, I was able to take a 10x10 design and split it to use in the majestic hoop.

A couple of things I did that may or may not be relevant and may or may not help others:

1. When I chose the multi position majestic hoop in embrilliance, it orients as 350x360. My hoop is 360x350, so I chose the rotate by 90 degrees.

2. I loaded the design in embrilliance and centred the design in the majestic hoop.

3. I saved the stitch file and took it to my machine.

4. I loaded the stitch file in my machine. It loaded so that the left side would stitch out first, but I used the machine controls to change the order so that the right side would stitch first. This is a step I did not do before, and was a user error rather than embrilliance issue.

5. I used the precise positioning tools on the machine to line up the two halves. You are correct that the basting boxes are very helpful in aligning the designs. I also used the machine control that said to fit the design in the hoop...this eliminating the need for me to manually try and get it exactly on the hoop line.

6. The machine stitched out the right side and then said to turn the hoop! To stitch out the left side.


thank you for your hel

Hi Shasta,

Thanks for posting these steps! Were you able to stitch the design completely, or is the "turn the hoop" message still a sticking point?

I think maybe it wants you to turn the hoop because of step 4. Perhaps instead you can select the next design (the other side) and to a maneuver similar to your step 4, changing the order with the machine controls in order to do the left side.

Hi Kirsten...the design stitched perfectly! Turning the hoop is absolutely correct and necessary with this particular hoop...it has connection to the machine on both sides! Thank you for your help and keeping in touch throughout this issue and my learning curve!

Shasta, that is great! Thank YOU for keeping us up to date. That helps us all learn together. What did you find that helped you make the last connection in your learning curve?

Hi Kirsten! At first I thought that when embrilliance split the design it would be ready to go! But through your comments and well as the embrilliance help desk I realized I had to do a little more tweaking to get it to work on my machine. I don’t do much precise positioning, so had a learning curve there! But all is good! Thanks again for your help

Hi Kirsten

There is an embrilliance tube video by Lisa Shaw titled

Enthusiast splitting for VP3 majestic hoop...(I don’t know how to link it here!)

That is what I am trying to follow...but it doesn’t actually go to the stitch out

After watching the video, I think that I, too would want to begin with the right side first, not the left.

Hi Shasta, in case you missed it, Here's what Tamara got when she contacted support. If yours is a program problem, it might help!
"There’s a download on the Embrilliance page at the very bottom, it’s an updatedrelease that says beta and fixes but it has the same build number.When you install it, you’ll see the release date is different though"

Thanks! I will have a look at that one.

I have a serious issue happening, when the split occurs, it's placing a basting box around each split and the box is outside of the hoop in both designs. That leads to an error at the machine that it's too large for the extra large hoop.

Hi Tamara..I am having a similar problem trying to split a design for the Viking Majestic Hoop..360x350. I am replying to you so that I get notifications. I am going to try again, and if I continue to have problems, I will report my issues to Embrilliance, also
