Artisan Plus

Embroidery Design

The Artisan Plus module is a valuable addition to any company that requires the ability to create their own embroidery designs. It enables a smooth transition from receipt of an initial artwork through to a finished embroidered sample. A variety of labour saving tools exist including automatic routing and underlay.

Path Copy

Path Copy

This is an excellent tool for repeating objects around a specified shape. Simply select the object that you wish to copy, specify the number of copies and the path to be followed. The copies will be produced with equal spacing in-between.

Satin Serial

This is an invaluable tool that allows the digitiser to create borders that automatically have a user controlled set width. This is particularly useful when using poor quality artworks.

Automatic Appliqué


This innovative feature allows the transformation of vectors or digitised outlines into an appliqué design. Having selected the object you wish to appliqué it is possible to specify a Mark out effect, apply a Frame movement and Stop to allow placement of the appliqué fabric, followed by Cover stitches to complete the design.

Stitch Estimator

Stitch estimator

The integrated Stitch Estimator tool allows you to load/scan an image and generate an estimation of the number of stitches that the finished design will contain without having to digitise it first.

A Quick Font tool is now available, it enables a character that has been typed out and edited, to be stored in a Quick Font that can then be used again within the design.

Stitch estimator
