What is possible with this software ?
This really is one of the easiest digitizing software packages to use.
Which machine can i use this software with ?
If you own an Janome machine, the MC12000, MC11000, MC10000, MC10001, MC350e, MC200e and MB4 designs are sent directly from your PC straight into the machine via its USB or serial port connection.
On the Janome MC9700, MC9500 and Janome MC300e use the optional USB card read/writer kit attached to your PC where you can save your designs to flash card, which can then be inserted into the card port of the Janome MC9700, MC9500 and MC300e.
If you own another embroidery machine brand you can still use this software, but you may also need some sort of device to get the designs from your PC into the machine to stitch out, usually just a USB memory stick does the trick.
