Embroidery Software

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.

RE: Embroidery Software

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.

RE: Embroidery Software

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.

RE: Embroidery 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
