i take Bernina ARTlink 8 . . .
I find Wilcom Truesizer works well for reformatting as well as resizing. Although my Embird and Husqvarna software both do an excellent job I have tried Wilcom for over a decade to be sure I could recommend it.
Mine was not free. I would definitely want one that is not brand-dependent, such as for Husquvarna only or Brother only, etc.
I have had Husqvarna software since 1998 and it has always offered multiple embroidery formats. The design files are specific for each brand, the stitch files are in most formats, ART being the only exception. So I could use it for my Brother machine as well.
What I use most for digitising, however, is Embird. I think it is easier to use for that purpose.
I use WILCOM also for converting formats and size. In the settings area you can sometimes change the sizing. Have been using this for quite a number of years without any problems. I say give it a go.
I use Sewwhat Pro. It converts files and resizes them
.There is a free version you can try .
I’ll check. Do you like using it and is there a limit to the free time?
I love sewwhatpro! The free time is a month. But it is not expensive to buy and they have great customer care.
I am happy to see that other's like the SewWhatPro also... I am fixing to download the free trial of this and then buy it after that I'm sure.... It looks like it will do what I want to do.
I also have the Wilcom and the wilcom pro.... have used the reg free version for years.
I have WILCOM. the problem now is that it won't convert anything bigger than 5X7. I have a lot of bigger designs in other formats since I got my new Janome 500E with a bigger hoop.
Any help I can get through this thread will be very much appreciated.
I am not in a position right now to purchase expensive software.
I definitely need a larger hoop area for conversion. Thank you.
I don’t see a size limitation on the information page. Do you have the desktop or cloud version?
I have the free version and Wilcom will not support the free one. Obviously they want you to buy.
Hmmm...not sure why you can only save up to 5x7...I just tested the web version and had no problem opening, modifying the size as a 9x 10 design and saved it with no problem...
I would also recommend the free Wilcom software....
