Embroidery Machine Formats

Does Amazing Designs software read ART format?

Amazing Designs software currently reads Artista ART format versions 1-3. ART version 4 designs will not be read by our programs. If possible, convert these designs to version 1-3, or to another format suchas PES or JEF.

When our software is updated to read ART version 4, this update will be available as a free download for Amazing Design software owners.

To be notified when this update is available, please sign up for our e-newsletter.
