The order of objects creation and also sewing, therefore was chosen so that connections are hidden under the cover stitches of columns. The second approach is not fully manual, in fact, and can use trace tool to vectorize character. The tools in the top section of the panel serve to manipulate the finished objects and to control the work area zoom and pan.
Users who digitize company logos may often encounter situation when no font matches the logo and lettering must be digitized manually.
Select Generate Stitches command from the pop-up menu that appears on the right mouse button click. Use Duplicate and Mirror Vertically command.
Main Menu – Nodes
When disabled, user can edit only last 2 nodes on each edge. This column mode allows to digitize columns with different number of nodes on each side. If underlying graphic template is clear and sharp enough, you can use trace tool to vectorize character edges instead of manual digitizing. If there are two lines, tool measures also the angle between the two lines.
Measurement Tool measures distances and angles in mnaual.
Main Menu – Edit
Please note that column object overlaps areas at left and right side to avoid gaps in stitching caused by pull effect of the fabric. Each character contains one or more columns. These connections are marked by blue arrows. However, these options serve to snap whole objects not just edited nodes. To hide connection under cover stitches of the next column, make connection of the “V” shape as illustrated below:.
Sfumato is an optional part of the Studio. When doing a complex outline, some outline parts start not on end of previous part, but on its beginning, instead. The principle of lettering digitizing is explained on manuwl case of simple character “A”. Use Delete Whole Edge command to erase whole edge and start its creation anew.
Use zoom tool to zoom in left mouse button click or zoom out right mouse button click. Program automatically fills object with column stitches and connections. The corner at top part of “A” is too sharp for a single continuous column object. These commands help to locate first and last node on complex edges with large number of nodes. Basic tools for creation and editing of vector objects in Studio are located on a left-side panel. Therefore, stop column at the top of “A”: To hide connection under cover stitches of the next column, make connection of the “V” shape as illustrated below: Now select “Auto-Column” option in the parameters window and generate the stitches.
Then digitize the hole with the fill opening tool. Make sure that column mode “A” is selected in combo box in the top-right corner of the Studio window. Therefore, stop column at the top of “A”:. Use Duplicate and Mirror Horizontally command.
Now create the last column. Use this command to assure there will be no jump stitch mmanual the two objects. Reverse Nodes Order comes next; it changes the order of nodes. Snap to Nearest Node command moves selected node on top of nearest node which belongs to other object. It is possible to select them all and group them into a single item in the list, for easier manipulations like moving, scaling, etc.
Connections are often included between respective characters too, for the same reason.
Studio includes lettering tool for quick and easy creation of text labels, but it requires Alphabet or font file containing the lettering style you want to use. In case of character with multiple holes like “B”for exampleuse this tool for each hole separately. To add Opening to Fill or Sfumato, the Fill or Sfumato must be either selected or it must be the last object in the Object Inspector list.
Approach 1 – full control of stitches direction In this case all objects will be drawn manually node-by-node in a specific order. Black arrow marks the end point of the object. Create one quarter of the object. It allows to create one or two measuring lines. It means that it does not snap selected node to nodes of actually edited object, only to nodes of other objects.
Manuql we need to start a new column at the bottom part of “A”but we need to get thread to this point to avoid jump. Objects are listed in order of sewing from top to bottom. Create Second Edge command works on columns and objects with two sides.
