Stitch types & effects

The most important object property is stitch type. The software uses object outlines and the associated stitch type to generate stitches. Whenever you reshape, transform or scale an object, stitches are regenerated according to current settings.

Different stitches are suited to different objects. You can change stitch types at any stage. A wide range or fill and line stitch types is available via the Object Properties docker.

In addition to its many stitch types, the software also provides stitch effects to create artistic effects such as textured or contoured fill stitching.

Create interesting curved effects by shaping needle penetrations to follow the contour of digitized lines. Create rough edges, shading effects, or imitate fur and other fluffy textures.

Vary stitch spacing between dense and open fill, producing shading effects which are difficult to achieve manually. Move underlying travel runs to the edges of an object so that they can’t be seen through open stitching.
