More Ways to Digitize

Design Objects

In order to input the geometry of the objects, you can digitize objects in the standard way by entering each of the points of arc or bezier curves, or hands- free, or by auto-trace on raster images, or simply selecting the vector objects (using already defined shape)

Use Artwork from any

Source

The digitizing process can start from bitmap/raster graphic files or vector graphics, coming from websites or created in other commercial graphics applications, photo images obtained with a camera or scanner, and images or vectors imported from other graphics applications. The digitizing process can also start from drawings created in this application.

Smart Design

Smart design tool accelerates the designs creation and designs editing. It allows to create rhinestone or sequin objects with your favorite fill style with a simple click on vector objects. It also offers the fastest way to select the rhinestone/sequin object type to create when digitizing on raster images. In addition, smart design tool can be used on editing to convert between different object types with a single click.

Synchronized Multiple-views

The program offers several ways to present the information of the objects that constitute the design. The work area is the main view; it shows all objects graphically in their location on the design. Complementary views include the design map, the sequence view, the list of elements, the satellite view and the simulation view. Whenever you create or modify an object, those views are updated automatically.

Objects Editing

Change the shape (geometry) of the hotfix objects, scale horizontally, vertically or keeping the aspect ratio, or rotate it. Upon changes, the system automatically reprocess the hotfix objects to update the beds placement. Each object can be filled with different hotfix fill styles, and each style can be adjusted according to your preferences to get the result you need.

Editing Stones & Sequins

In addition to object editing where the software automatically generates stones and sequins contained in an area or line; the system allows individual editing of each bead: change the type, move, delete, add individual pieces. Finishing job is made easier by highlighting overlapped or too close beds, allowing you to decide whether to remove them or change their position.

Hotfix Fill Styles

The program offers a complete set of styles to fill lines and areas with rhinestones and sequins to produce the most attractive designs: different types of uniform fill, concentric fill, flat fill, flexible fill, textures and others.

Advanced Lettering

The lettering system allows the use of true-type fonts. The user can use both the fonts installed on the computer and thousands of new fonts available online. Rhinestone and sequin designs with texts can be created in a few seconds by simply entering the characters, choosing the font and indicating the proper hotfix stitch style.

Editing Stones & Sequins

Rhinestone designs can be exported to vinyl cutters or laser to produce rhinestones stencils and, directly, to most brands and models of automatic hotfix rhinestone and sequin motif making machines of the market. Please ask about compatibility with the brand and model of your equipment
