The Ultimate Box

Just got your new machine and feeling a rush to embroider as many of those beautiful designs as soon as possible? Don't want to spend a substantial amount of money on preprogrammed design cards, which may cost about $100.00 each containing just a few designs on them? Would you like to download and use designs from the Internet or buy them on the floppy or compact disks?

Then, The Ultimate Box and The Ultimate Card (re-writible blank card) are all you need!

What does The Ultimate Box do?

The Ultimate Box is a read/write device that transfers embroidery designs from a hard drive on your computer to a re-writable blank embroidery card. The card fits your Brother, Baby Lock, Bernina Deco, Simplicity and Viking/Husqvarna machines. Click for a complete list of models by Manufacturer.

The Ultimate Box writes to The Ultimate Card, Amazing* blank card, Magic** blank card, and 512K (4 Megabit) Blank Brother card. The Ultimate Box reads and saves designs back to the hard drive of your computer from the above blank cards and most pre-programmed design cards.

Why should I use an Ultimate Card?

Did you know that Brother, Baby Lock, Bernina Deco, or Simplicity sewing machines can use cards of up to 1 Megabyte in memory size (approximately 450,000 stitches)?
The Ultimate Card can hold up to 1 Megabyte of memory which is 2, 4, or even 8 times as much as a standard embroidery card!

Included Software:

- Automatically convert into a required card format for Brother, Baby Lock, Bernina Deco, Simplicity, White, Viking/Husqvarna, Pfaff and Bernina Artista from any of the read formats.

- Ultimate Box reads many embroidery formats including (at the time of publication) PES, PEC, PHB, PHC, HUS, SHV, VIP, VP3, JEF, JEF+, SEW, DST, EXP, XXX, ART(v1-3), EMB(v1-6), JAN(v1).

- No limit to the number of designs written to cards other than card space.

- Read, save and catalogue designs into folders on your computer from re-writable and most pre-programmed design cards.

- Add / Rename / Explore folders, Delete individual designs, Erase Card and lots of other functions.

- Automatic Un-Zip. No more time to spend and no additional software to use to open .ZIP design files. Automatically repairs designs even in some corrupted .ZIP files created by other conversion programs.

- Compatible with Windows operating systems including MS Windows 98/ME/200/XP. MAC users should download and installEmboxer software from https://embrilliance.com/emboxer

- The program does not crash or go away if the box is unplugged! Plug/unplug the Ultimate box as many times as you want, use different boxes of the same type or switch between single slot UB and dual slot UB2.

- 3-D view to see the thread texture of the design.

- Print actual-size templates of designs to be written or designs that have been read and stored.

- Fine tuning of file splits. Control how designs get split when using older formats/machines. No other box program has allowed the user to customize it to the degree the Ultimate box does. Very useful for modern machines which allow higher stitch/color counts.

- Single-page interface. This is the most user-friendly design for any box program ever. See more than 6 designs at a time. Window layout is adjustable and remembered.

- Use a Card Area to see what you will be writing to the card. See how full the card will be when you write. Card Gauge shows card capacity used by percent.

- A comprehensive help system. - Languages: English, German and French (at the time of publication).

Each box comes with a 30-day Money Back Guarantee!

Hi Again, I ordered the Ultimate Box Basic and Ultimate Card I today. I am wondering if I will be able to use it on two different computers at my house, or just one. Thanks.

Heather B.

Hi, Marci. I believe the software can be installed on more than one computer. The Ultimate box is simply unplugged from one and then into the other.

I have a vintage Bernina Deco 650 and a 2017 iMac computer. What box and card would I need in order to be able to purchase designs online and then use my iMac to write them to a card that is compatible with the Deco 650? Would you recommend doing this, or just getting a Brother PE770, which would have the USB port, a larger stitching area, and would not need any special software? I wonder how long the Deco 650 is going to last since it is such an old machine, and I hesitate to spend so much on the Ultimate Box and card when I could get a new machine for only a little more money. Would appreciate your thoughts on this!

Hi, Marci. It's totally your call on whether upgrading your machine is in the cards for you at this time or if you'd like to try a transfer box. If you want to try the transfer box, I'd recommend the Ultimate Box Basic for you, along with a Type I Ultimate Card. Since you are on a Mac, you would also need to install the free Emboxer software, which is available as a download from the manufacturer's website:

http://vikant-emb.com/embroidery-designs-converter/ultimate-box-usb-downloads/

(The download is listed about halfway down the page.)

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi Heather I hope that you can help me. I purchased for a first machine for my daughter a SE400 and I gave her my old ultimate box basic, but I can't find a blank card to go with it, where can these be purchased. Will she need another program besides the ultimate box to see her designs on her computer? I have the dreammaker so I don't know all of the particulars on this machine. I went from an ULT which is still my old favorite and back up to a dreammaker. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi, Pat. Thanks for the questions. The blank Ultimate Card can be purchased through Embroidery.com. For your daughter's machine, I'd recommend a Type I Ultimate Card:

https://www.embroidery.com/product.ec?productsetID=39173

Software-wise, the Ultimate Box will allow your daughter to view designs on her computer and transfer them to her new machine. If she's just doing a limited amount of embroidery, that may be all she needs. If she'll be doing a lot of embroidery or just wants more functionality, she may want to invest in some additional software.

A good all around software I can recommend for a new embroiderer is Embrilliance Essentials. You can read about it by following this link:

https://www.embroidery.com/Embrilliance-Essentials.ec?efid=1245

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

I hope this helps!

I have the Viking Rose too and the obsolete parallel reader/writer which I cant use any more. Does the Ultimate box work with Windows 7 please, also, description of the Vikant Ultimate Box says it will read and save "most pre-programmed" design cards to your hard drive. does that include Husqvarna design cards?

Please Login to comment on this post.

Heather B.

Hi, Helen. Thanks for writing. For the Viking Rose, I would recommend the Ultimate Box Basic or Plus. If you need a blank card, I would recommend the Ultimate Card Type I. Yes, they are compatible with Windows 7.

The Ultimate Box can save designs from any card as long as the card is not write protected.

Sincerely,

~Heather

Heather B.

Hi, Eithne. Thanks for the question. We would recommend the Ultimate Box Basic or Plus for your daughter's Viking Rose machine. If she does not already have a blank card, we would recommend purchasing a Type I Ultimate Card along with her box.

Are you still sending just the USB version. I want a new box and am looking at the Vikant Box.

Thank you, Carol
