Sierra Technology is offering demonstration systems (for a limited time) under demand. Those systems are full-functional, then there are no hidden risks.
Claudio,

This is great news. I assume that we, your distributors, will be getting the information on how to offer this to our customers soon. I look forward to the update.

Hi LatteMarie,

What version of Wilcom software do you have? The rhinestone tools come standard with an upgrade to the latest DecoStudio and EmbroideryStudio e2. Need to check prices with your Wilcom distributor.

For those who havent got Wilcom software, DecoStudio is the entry level software but has full functioning rhinestone capability and contains CorelDRAW graphics suite so it's well worth considering, even if you arent doing much embroidery.

Thank-you for the info. Kristi! I do not own Wilcom, but was curious about the rhinestone portion since someone here mentioned it. It sounds like a nice addition for those that do own Wilcom.

Just another update to this list regarding CAMS automatic rhinestone machines: SWF changed their name to Coldesi and they are now the SOLE suppliers and service house for CAMS machines in North America. Mesa is no longer affiliated.

To further complicate the choices I have the DRAWings Embroidery Software and they too next week will be releasing DRAWings Pro vX6 and it will have a rhinestone function... Basically the same program as the Janome branded Artistic Crystals. MSRP on Artisitic Crystals is $399.00 works with CorelDRAW... Same with DRAWings...

The Artistic Sewing Suite at $799.00 have the DRAWings Embroidery software built in and the Artistic Crystals and a Cutwork function... So honestly that is a pretty good price considering other Rhinestone only programs are at a similar price point... I do embroidery too so these are of interest to me as well.

In my honest opinion no rhinestone software yet does what we need... It's a fast moving marketplace with things popping up every day it seems... I think at some point it will settle down a bit though and the cream will rise to the top...

I'm probably going to invest in the $400 for my DRAWings software... And see how the software works... Worst case the rhinestone function is lousy and I have updated embroidery software as I've been using DRAWings since the day it came out.

There is not much info but there is some you can check out here:

I did purchase the upgrade... I certainly like the embroidery enhancements...

As for the rhinestone features... There are a few features I like but when I'm evaluating rhinestone software I have to look at for the money what other options exist and then of those which do I like best...

For the money... $299 on the street for rhinestone only functions is just OKt... I don't think it's "THE" answer but it has a very similar to workflow to CorelDRAW which I like because I know CorelDRAW pretty well... The one thing it does "special" and is very important to me is when adding stones it applies the stones to the path... I change the path and the stones follow the path and as I change the path the number of required stones will change automatically as well... That is a must for me...

If I didn't have CorelDRAW I would maybe recommend it based on the other available options out there... The only thing in it's price range I could compare it to is WinPC Sign... I like Artistic Crystals simply because it applies the stones to the paths... WinPC Sign does not...

Now that said... Artistic Crystals cutting compared to WinPC Sign... WinPC Sign wins hands down... Artistic Crystals can't select stones by size or by size and color... WinPC Sign can...

So for these reasons it's a software I think is worth mentioning... But due to some of it's limitations in this first generation of the software I think I would pass... I don't know how I would get any work done if I only had it to rely on for all my rhinestone design... It's fills are not really any better than other rhinestone software offers and for most the fill capabilities are important and there is nothing "special" in Artistic Crystals on that front.

Now HotFix Era does have some "special" fill options so it truly brings something new to the table but then is lacking in other areas...

So "THE" rhinestone software solution... Still escapes us... But in time these programs will get better and better...

A Rhinestone machine that is now listed on here is the Decor automatic rhinestone setting machine.
It does not use an air compressor.
here is the link to the distributor that sells them. Great machines! very low maintenance.

With DAS there is not a listing of sizes but rather you type in the size you want. example for a ss6, I will cut at 2.1mm. With R-Wear all the sizes listed are the measurement for swaroski stones which smaller. So when using R-wear I have created custom sizes that I use.
Do you like DAS, I bought and am still having alot of problems. Can not get GCC cutter to work.

2. smart cut pro? ---> it is co cut sign program.
3.funtime. winpcsign, finecut...---> all same plug in.

I do not like this caos market. because they are not special. all that from coreldraw.
what do you think photoshop work only epson print. paintshop work only hp. autocad work only samsung...
it is very funny... at this time most cutter have enough force througn same sandblust rubber.
hopely oneday someome make professional rhinestom template software like photoshop.
all software is very good but they need share to improve this world. do not just following money.
I saw one of best possible. it is corel macro. if they make more graphics icon for easy understand, that is best. main reason is most cutter support coredraw driver.
then we can buy any cutter(not only for rhinestone. for sign, for t-shirts, for screenprint, for bluprint,....)
let's make open this problem
this man knows what he is talking about.

We are about to try to do Rhinestones. Was looking for a plug in for photoshop elements or a plugin for Corel draw 6 that works good. Anyone know of one ?

You can't create rhinestone patterns with Photoshop Elements but CorelDRAW X6 is a perfect choice...

There are several rhinestone Macros for CorelDRAW...

RStones 2 $49.00

rStones - rStones 2 overview

and DrawStones2 $34.95

Programs & Macros for CorelDRAW Graphics Suite: DrawStone2

Both are pretty basic and don't offer much in the way of training to use them and I don't mean that as a bad thing... It's just one of the limitations of most rhinestone software... There is very little "REAL" training available for any rhinestone software...

But both of these macros are great for easy basic designs... RStones 2 in my opinion is the better of the two but DRAWStone is no far behind... They are pretty equal...
