Posted by 6D™ Embroidery Software

This month, look at how to use the Life View feature, Individual lettering, Motif Fill in Design Creator, and the Add/Delete Node tools in 5D™ QuiltDesign Creator.

Inspired Icons - Life View Life View is new to the 6D™ Embroidery System and can be found in most modules. Use Life View to view the embroidery in 3D with real-world perspective using the export options set in Configure. You can see the effects of glow in the dark, solar reactive threads, twin needles, dual thread, and puffy foam.

Module Mystique - When you create your own designs in 6D™ Design Creator in the 6D™ PREMIER software, you have 10 Fill Area types to choose from, while in 5D Design Creator you have all but the Echo Fill. Motif Fill contains repeated small stitches placed using one of the Universal motifs, machine motif patterns, or one you have created.

Technique Tune-Up - Individual lettering is new to 6D™ Embroidery. Use this feature to move and resize the letters individually. Individual lettering can be used with Horizontal, Diamond, Pennant Right, Pennant Left, Perspective, and Italic Line Types. On the Letter tab, simply place a checkmark in the Individual box before clicking Apply.
