Free Format Conversion

Pattiann42 | Posted in Machine Embroidery on

Has anyone used Pulse Ambassador’s free software download?

I was recently asked to stitch out a design that was not in the format of my home embroidery machine (pes).  If my software does this, I have not figured it out, so I began looking for something inexpensive (inexpensive software – ha-ha-ha-ha).

First I tried a free trial from Buzz Tools.  This was successful.  Then I read somewhere in my search, that EmbroideryDesigns (freebies) has a conversion utility that will convert the designs.  If the design was purchased from ED and is larger than 4X4 they can access it and convert it for you. 

My design was larger than 4X4, and it had not been purchased from ED.  They were very courteous and suggested another free program: pulse ambassador.  I downloaded and tested the copy of the design that I had kept in the unusable format and was very happy with the results. 

An added bonus of the PA download is that you can select the thread company you prefer and you do not have to continue going back and forth changing & searching for your preference.  Sulky is not on the list, but many others are.

I hope this is helpful – happy stitching!

    I know this is an old thread, but the Barudan TES viewer is a lovely free viewer and design browser. It's simple to use, the design browser has a simple to use interface, shows you the colour seperations, stitching order and design information in a clear understandable format. It converts to most of the domestic formats as well and it's slow re draw function is brilliant. It's well worth the effort of downloading and installing it.

    I have both the Tajima pulse and the TES, plus Embird and the iconizer, another really good design browser but needs the Embird suite. I've also got the Janome design browser, I've used it once. A good program but takes forever to open and not as friendly as the TES viewer.
