DesignShop V10 Specifications

One phrase describes DesignShop V10—User-Friendly. Outstanding vector compatibility, and 160+ embroidery fonts combine to make DSV10 highly valuable to the embroidery designer. Here is a brief overview of the most notable features of this leading embroidery digitizing software:

  • Over 160 Premium Embroidery Fonts
    Purchased individually, these fonts would cost hundreds of dollars each. They are optimized to embroider beautifully on Melco embroidery machines. Each font was carefully selected based on industry demand. These are real embroidery fonts, not individual characters that require sizing, placement, kerning and spacing adjustments. In addition to standard alphabet characters in upper and lower case, many of these fonts contain numbers, symbols and euro characters.
  • Outstanding Vector Compatibility
    When you load a vector graphic into DSV10, a raster preview is automatically generated. This enables you to recreate the exact look and style of the design, including blends or gradients. EPS File Compatibility Compatible with most .eps files, backwards compatible with older .eps files.
  • Broad File Support
    Compatible with version 7 or lower .art files and version 1.8 and lower .emb files.
  • Updated Thread Charts
    The latest charts from Isacord, Madeira, and other major industry brands are built right in. New colors and color names are included for ease of use and searchability.
  • Fully compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

Digitizing features include:

  • UnaFill Splicer
    This will allow users to splice multiple directions of fill stitches for one object.
  • Auto Underlay
    Users now have multiple choices of underlay styles for any digitized object or font.
  • Object Color Properties
    Objects will maintain color properties so that copying and pasting will not require re-sequencing of colors.
  • Vector Graphics to Embroidery Assistant
    This awesome feature allows easy point and click conversion of any vector file to be digitized in seconds.

Production Tools
New production tools include fabric profiles that allow users to save design information, such as stitch densities, to specific fabrics or apply fabric profiles to specific designs. Also, design information may now be printed with bar codes. Use a bar code reader at anytime to recall the design, eliminating the need to search for design files on hard drives or disks. 

Hassle-Free Lettering!
DesignShop V10 takes lettering to the next level with features like control point editing, expanded stitch editing and automatic borders. DesignShop V10 features sophisticated lettering capabilities for all embroidery alphabets as well as true type conversions. You can even create your own alphabets.

Design Shop Pro File

What you see on screen is what you get with your embroidery.
DesignShop V10 allows you to work in various view modes to see stitches, colors and final output simulations. The screen/project view gives you a pre-embroidery look at the finished product. Also, the innovative appliqué feature (the first in the industry) lets you position the appliqué pieces on a fabric on-screen for a realistic view of the complete design.

Scale, rotate, align, group and revise your design with a click of the mouse.
DesignShop V10 features the latest editing tools, plus advanced expanded stitch editing, auto sequence, auto lock stitch editing and many more. 

Streamlined Production with Bar Code Technology
Easily create design information that can be scanned directly into your EMT16X Embroidery Machine using a bar code scanner. Here are some other production-friendly advantages to adding bar code technology to your embroidery department:

  • No computer experience necessary
  • Reduced production time
  • Produce orders more accurately, more quickly
  • Never reprogram the same design again
