Happy with result thanks to Wilcom!

I redigitized DST design and was able to reduce trims from many to one. And, having the ESA creator will make it easy for the next time I need these letters. Yay!!!

Well done!

A while back I challenged myself that I would digitise it in one go, as in no adding running stitches at end or re-sequence and no branching.
(I usually go back to add running stitches to reduce trims.)


I did use Apply Closest Join (J).
I am happy with the results (4 trims).

That looks great Antony !

I'm like you, I usually have to go back and add the running stitches to make things flow better and reduce trims.
Doing it "as you go" takes a lot of forethought and patience (which I don't have)!

Great job!

If I buy a digitized design for a customer from a third party I almost always re-digitize it to run and stitch properly. I had a customer bring me his dst file he had done on line and it had 64 trims in a 4-inch luf. after redoing the design I had twelve trims and reduced the color changes from 14 to 6. I tell everyone if they supply the design instead of art it could (and probably will) actually cost more. I have found it far more time consuming to try to fix someone's design than create it.

So True! Often I think, "Oh! This won't be too bad to edit", then it becomes more & after spending an enormous amount of time on it, I refuse to surrender and admit defeat - LOL Crazy thinking on my part, I guess.

I sent a problematic file to Wilcom Support yesterday after trying to 'fix' two merged DST third party designs. Editing & making changes caused Wilcom to freeze on multiple occasions. Redigitizing would have been the fastest & less headache generating option!
