Embroidering Custom Designs
Custom lettering has been the only successful operation (as of 2021/08/20). Here's how to do it:
In a new Inkscape window, go to 'Extensions --> Ink/Stitch --> Lettering, and a window will pop up.
Add your text, select your font, size your text box, and then save the file as a
.dst file to a USB thumb drive.
Note: At first, a 64GB USB thumb drive was tried, with no success. A freshly formatted (FAT32 formatted) 16GB USB was successful.
Then, follow the instructions in the manual to embroider from a USB file.
Note: The proper steps to set up the machine will need to be followed before starting the job.
What do I do if I screw something up?
First, don't worry. Failing, learning, and trying again is a critical part to the creative process.
Second, contact User:Llcrump and discuss what the next steps should be.
