Embroidery Software

Suzanne_azJanuary 10, 2005

I am a new Viking/Husqvarna Designer 1 owner. I would like to know what the difference is between .hus and .shv formats. In looking at the embird software, I see that it will convert other formats to the .hus, but not the .shv format. Does the Designer 1 recognize either hus or shv, or both? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would read the boring technical data that comes with your machine and the manual to find out what format your machine recognizes.

Do you have the disk manager? I down load everything in HUS format. When I put it through the disk manager it automaticly changes it to SHV. I bought all viking software because if I had a problem I knew they could help me. I don't know anything about embird so I can't help you out there. If you go to the marthapullen site and the embroidery forum, they are all very helpful and knowledgeable.

Suzanne, you can email Marie at MyEmbroideryHaven with any questions you have about Embird. She is a dealer and has a LOT of knowledge about the software.

Thanks ladies (I assume ladies), Your information is helpful. I have no D1 software, nor can I afford it at this point. I discovered that Embird will save to .Hus format, which Viking software recognizes, but the D1 has to have images saved in the SHV format (which Embird doesn't do). I was hoping to find a less expensive avenue to digitizing my own designs, and I still am persuing some. Thanks for the help, Suzanne in AZ
