6D™ Embroidery Software

6D™ Embroidery System software is the next step for machine embroidery software; technically advanced and sophisticated, but easy to use. A key feature for many embroidery enthusiasts is to be able to view their project with real world perspective before actually creating the project. Life View In 6D™ Software gives a real-world, three-dimensional view of your embroidery project. With Life View you are able to move the embroidery and twist it as you would to see it in real life! You can also see special effects such as Puffy Foam right on the screen. Audition your project backgrounds and any appliqué fabrics, too.

Design Player allows you to watch your design “stitching” on screen, so you can see the way your project will be embroidered. New in 6D™, multiple windows allow you to adjust, modify and create an unlimited number of designs, lettering and projects “side by side”. Design parts stay separate when you open, copy and save so you can easily adjust your project on another day.

The 6D™ Embroidery System harnesses the full power of Windows® technology to make embroidery more intuitive. It supports touchscreen gestures to zoom, move, resize and rotate designs. You can also view embroideries and design files as thumbnail images with their stitch and color information in Windows® Explorer! Search for designs, convert and print them with the 6D™ Explorer Plug-in.

Quilting is a passion for so many of us, and with the QuiltBlock Wizard you can create a filled or outline quilt block automatically and even surround an embroidery with a quilting fill! Create shapes for your pieced quilt with just a few clicks, and choose from a huge variety of fills: Stipple, Channel, Diamond, Motif, Contour and Shape effects. The new Echo fill repeats your embroidery with a shadow effect.

These are just a few of the amazing new features in the 6D™ Embroidery System. Personalizing is a central feature: Choose from over 145 specially created fonts (including six fonts for Puffy Foam) to create multiline text or the perfect monogram! Alternatively, use the 6D™ QuickFont Wizard to create lettering automatically from most TrueType® and OpenType® fonts on your computer. Fonts, SuperDesigns and Frames are now displayed in galleries for easy selection. Adjust spacing between letters and resize individually. Embellish your lettering or any design with over 500 frame and flourish options. Add an automatic border or decorative motifs.

Editing, design creation and so much more is faster and more intuitive than ever. Reshape and restyle your embroideries with object editing or emboss your own “stamps” on designs. Create heritage cross-stitch, lace, appliqué, greetings cards, and embroideries from cherished photos or a chart from your family history – You Won’t Believe Where It Takes You.

The 6D™ Software is available in three packages: 6D™ Premier, 6D™ Embroidery Extra and 6D™ Embroidery. Visit your local authorized HUSQVARNA VIKING® retailer for a demo or to purchase the 6D™ Embroidery System package of your choice. Or visit 6DEmbroiderySystem.com for more information.

    I tried digitizing software when I first started with an embroidery machine many years ago. Eventually I decided digitizing just wasn’t for me. Now I buy the designs I want and use editing software to tweak combine, resize designs and add lettering. i do admire people who digitize their own designs, but this works best for me. I am glad that there are so many choices in software to allow everyone to pick what works the best for them. There are even choices available for those of us who are MAC users!

    I don’t have elaborate software like this! I could do a lot with this!! I do have some great software that allows me to make some basic designs, I could do more if I had time to learn more about digitizing, but I have used the wizard features of it to auto digitize some outline designs and some monograms. I have fun with it! It looks like this new one takes the place of several software a that I own!

    7 years ago I purchased my first software along with my first embroidery machine. Using software to digitize designs takes tons of time and patience but in my opinion, is well worth the effort! I taught myself through trial and error and participating in webinars for my software. What I like about my Janome MBX Software are its limitless capabilities and the quality of the end results. My favorite designs to digitize are appliques.

    I use Floriani Total Control Pro and L O V E it! You can do anything that you can think of in embroidery. Right now split deigns are popular and you can do split designs. You can modify existing designs or use parts of any existing designs or take parts from several designs and put them together. You can make your own puffy foam designs, create your own appliqués, make lace and of course resize any design and digitize your own designs AND updates are always FREE. It is WONDERFUL and I highly recommend it. I attend Floriani classes every month taught by Nicci Brazzell at Jeff’s Sewing and Vac in Martinez, GA and learn something new at every class. It is a software that growers with your experience a d knowledge of the software. Can you tell I really like it?

    I started out with 4D Professional and quickly jumped to 5D Professional when it became available. I was using 5D on my Macbook Pro by installing software to allow Windows programs to be used on a Mac. I did not like having to switch between the Mac side and the Windows side on the computer, so once again, I switched to TruEmbroidery when it became available. Best idea I have found for those of us using Macs! I have tried digitizing my own designs, but prefer to purchase the designs and tweak them as I see fit.

    I use my 5D Extra for so many things! I was making a shirt to wear on karaoke night and took one design that was a heart filled with musical notes, took another design that had a wreath with a bird in the middle. With 5D I was able to delete the wreath and move the bird to perch on the top of the heart. I then added a portion of another design to put musical notes near the bird’s open beak. That is just ONE of the fun things I’ve been able to make with my software. Now I can’t wait to get 6D Premier!!

    I purchased a digitizing program 2+ years ago and I have used it to add lettering to designs/projects, but still have NOT been successful in learning to digitize. The bad part of this software is I am stuck with it as the company does NOT allow you to sell the software. I will keep trying to “learn” touse it because it cost me $1500, and I hate wasting money (which I feel I did waste a LOT OF MONEY) . The dealer where I bought this software did/does NOT offer classes ( this is not my dealer now!!)

When purchasing patterns that come in multiple sizes, I can purchase the smallest and least expensive pattern and then enlarge it in the software to whatever size I prefer. I love that I can combine and edit patterns. This was, by far one, of the smartest investments to my embroidery studio!

    We have had Artista digitizing software for many years..beginning with the basic and adding each subsequent upgrade. My sewing center continues to offer software club on a monthly basis and we have really benefited from attending this. We find that there’s almost nothing that can’t be done with this wonderful software. My favorite use since then has been using the true type fonts that make designing with Monograms really fun… We have recently begun to digitize a business logos to be embroidered onto shirts and other items. It is such a cool experience to see what can be done with lettering and the the design insertion process.

    I started with Viking DOS software and upgraded twice but sadly couldn’t get the dongle to work after upgrading to Vista, had editing software that came with my Bernina machine that I upgraded so I could continue to digitise, but never liked Bernina’s software and had problems when I upgraded to Win 7 so I went for the cheapest option for digitising and got Embird. I digitise the drawings I make in my CAD software and use the designs as stamps either to quilt with or to embroider on fabric I then use for dressmaking or patchwork. I think it is great fun to manually digitise so I never use any automatic tools.

It’s nowhere near the caliber of some of the programs listed above but it’s free and I think an okay place to start.

    My husband bought me 6d premier for xmas. Unfortunately it was an upgrade from 5d extra and I only have 5d. I want to digitize photos and pictures in jpeg format or my own sketching (I am a real newbie.) 5d won’t do any of that. Does anyone have any experience with 6d extra? I won’t use the cross stitch, quilting or family tree modules and 6d extra is a LOT less than 6d premier. Since I need to return the upgrade to get the right one, I am not sure if I should get the 6d extra or the 6d premier.

    Hello, I also am new to the 6D embroidery but only got the basic. Does anyone know if I am able to upload a special font to that software and use that or do I need to get the digitizing software upgrade to be able to use a font that I have on my word doc. It’s the Walt Disney Font. I just bought it and haven’t even opened it yet, but want to make sure I have the correct software for what I would like to do. The woman at the store was not helpful.

    I use my software to digitize, have done a few things that I am proud of,my son’s Farmall C tractor, also use it to tweak the designs that I purchase. Recently got the Pfaff 5D and 6D software. Have not got the finer points of it all figured out yet. I get these wonderful ideas in my head, and then never seem to get them to work in the software. It will take time and patience to get it all figured out.

    I purchased 5d and never received any books, the store downloaded the software. Does anyone know how I can purchase just the instruction books or DVD. I am thinking of purchasing the 6d, however if not sure of 5d. Think I am going over my head. Thanks

    Not happy…spent over $700 on the 6d program and was excited about all it can do….except it appears to not work with my Brother Innovis 6000d. At first I installed it on my pc and had all kinds of issues, script errors. The dealer contacted the rep for 6D after I spent $80 with tech support to tell me it was a software issue. The rep never got back to me, even though they were supposed to call or email me. I took the program back, purchased a brand new laptop from Best Buy with Geek Squad. We did get it loaded with all of the updates, 6 hours later, it is installed all updates done but it doesn’t communicate with my machine. I asked on a Brother forum on facebook only to have a member from there tell me it is not compatible, never has been, none of the versions. Really after all the money spent, countless hours, nobody could tell me that, not the dealer, not the rep and now I have a program that I can’t return and I have never used it for one stitch…..Is this true it is not compatible????

      Since you create and edit patterns in the 6D … I don’t understand why it wouldn’t be compatible with your Brother machine. It’s the format you save the patterns in that makes the difference. For your Brother you’d use the .pes format. The communication with your machine would be found using the icon with the screwdriver and tools. You set it up to communicate there. I have a small Brother and it works fine with the patterns, I just have to use a PED Basic program to put it on the machine.

    I am desperately searching for a copy of 5D professional. All I need it two modules …. photostitch and stitch editor. Have the 5D extra but need those particular modules. I know it’s obsolete now but desperate and can’t afford the 6d permier. Any suggestions or anyone know someone wanting to sell a 5D professional?

    Thank you!

    I would like to use my 6D to send appliqué embroidery designs in vp format to my Silhouette cameo to cut the fabric to size and avoid the in the hoop cutting. How do I save my embroidery designs as svg or JPEG2000 designs for cutting

    This is also possible if they offer SEO as part of their service.

    They offer so many extras that make starting up a new website so simple
    that even a complete novice could get a website up and running.
    Elements such as text, graphics, images, font sizes and colors are
    used in designing and producing pages for a web site.

    We are a company that bought a Singer Quantum Stylist EM200 with 6D Extra version Software.

    We create logo’s with Corel Draw X7 and import the image with the tool Wizards (it draws the embroidery image automatically). When we preview the embroidery design, it seems good. However, when we try to embroider it, the result is very bad:
    Thread broken, not seem a Satin Embroider unless we chose this option, border lines not straight, holes on the t-shirt…Horrible..We very disappointed… 🙁

    Do you know if we can we use the tool Sketch with the 6D Extra version? Could we update this module? If not, how can we draw our own stitch paint and fill it with no necessity of drawing each stitch?

    Thank you so much!

    I recently bought a singer EM200 to embroider shirts for work. I went on line and bought the Buckingham font I need. I just found out that the added font will not work as instructed with the built in fonts and I’m stuck. Is there a book for dummies in this field? I have no Idea how to simply write this out. Please help if you can. Thanks Beth

    Hi, I have just sold my 6D Embroidery Extra software package to someone as I upgraded to the Premium version. They have just completed the installation on their laptop and they are now requiring my email address and password as the program was registered on my name. They are wanting to put in my email details and then change the email address to their own. Would this have a negative impact on the registration of my Premium program as both the 6D and Premium are linked to my email address? I was thinking of just creating a new email address and we both share it – that way we both have access?

      You may want to check with the Viking tech folks before you do that. It may not be allowed according to the Licensing agreement. If you do this….it may terminate your new software.
