Claudio,Yes, you are right.
The software includes many design and editing tools, but output options are not included by default.
It is important to select the right software configuration in order to earn money on unnecessary drivers covering all kind of machines.
If necessary, drivers for other machines can be purchased later.
Sierra Technology is offering demonstration systems (for a limited time) under demand. Those systems are full-functional, then there are no hidden risks.
Hi LatteMarie,I have Wilcom, do you know how much the update cost if rhinestoning is in the update. Thanks.
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.
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...I have a variety of Rhinestone programs and find the latest release of Wilcom Embroidery software with Rhinestone capability has them all beat. Granted, if you do not have a need for High-End embroidery software it can be cost prohibitive.
Kevin, how did this turn out?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.
I did purchase the upgrade... I certainly like the embroidery enhancements...Kevin, how did this turn out?
Do you like DAS, I bought and am still having alot of problems. Can not get GCC cutter to work.I think I agree with David. Funtime and Winpcsign pro is from the same company..and if you are using Winpcsign, the sizes listed in the drop down dialog box is the measurement of the hole but the stones of that size will not easily brush in. with winpcsign, for a ss6, I will cut either ss7 or ss8...so the stones will go in easily and be easy to lift out. 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.
this man knows what he is talking about.at this time rhinestone market is caos.
all cutter company make they own software.do not want share driver.
problem come from there.
1. knk.ace idesigner...--> all same program(engraelab)
they just trick driver for they own brand name.
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
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 ?
