Norton logo files help needed for embroidery.

Postby bwolfie » Sun Apr 08, 2012 9:53 am

My wife is going to embroider the Norton Logo on some of the leather I got for the seat I am making. The only problem is I only have the Logo in .jpeg and .png, and neither will convert for her machine. Does anyone have it in any other formats? She has a Husquvarna machine and it likes the following formats: .SHV, .DHV, .VP3, .VIP, .HUS, .PEC, .PES, .PCS, .XXX, .SEW, .JEF. .EXP, .10*, AND .DST embroidery files. It will also use a .SH7 stich file, .VF3 font file and a .TXT or .HTM/HTML file. Hopefully I can find one of these. Thanks for any help.

Hi, should be able to google .jpeg or .png to....whatever type you want. If she has a program she may be able to import a jpeg into the program....I have never seen or used a husquvarna machine or the like.

Cheers

EDIT -----
If you want to send me the file I'm sure I could do it for you. =)

What you are looking for are what are known as digitized embroidery files. They are much different from typical graphic files.

Usually the conversion software is not cheap and if done correctly, takes a skilled person to get the best embroidery. You can take the jpg to a local embroiderer and have them convert it. Not sure what they will change, perhaps $50?

So your Husqvarna seeing machine is so advanced it can embroider, bit only accepts files that an expert can convert...?

I find that hard to imagine.

Check the instructions for how to import the files you want to use.
Did the sewing machine come with a program?
Call Husqvarna and ask them how to import a jpg.

Bloody Swedes! ;-)

Husquvarna is obsessed with proprietary stuff and encryption. This machine is better than the last two. It's USB enables and dosn't need a special dongle and reader. This is the first time my wife is trying to do this type of embroidery. She did some Regular text yesterday and it worked well. Now I'm trying to get her to help me, but it's not a priority. So I am trying to figure it out on my own. It might be easy if she does it.

Google for 3D Embroidery Studio seems to be a program that comes with the Huski machines that is for converting formats to something the Huski can use.
Hope this helps

Read to the end, it will take a jpeg file.
