Hot off of my fancy new machine, appliqué version of Burts Streamliner
Sra, it looks fast!
You are aware what you have done now? Every member here would want a special patch with Indian theme now.
This is only the Mk1 version.......Couple of issues to fix..
This design of my new Scout is still in the drawing phase, its going to be big and will have to be assembled in sections on the machine.
Awesome!! I didn't realise computer embroidery machines can handle something that complex. Just out of interest, how many different colour threads can you have in your machine at one time? I'm assuming the machine doesn't dye white thread on the fly like inkjet printers?
My machine is only a single needle machine so only one thread at a time. When I am programming the design I try and group as far as possible all of stitches of the same colour to minimise thread changes.
I may invest in a multi needle (16 needles) machine at some point, but at the moment I'm having fun with this one.
This is the finished tank of the Scout design.
Great effort considering you have to change colour every time! Thanks for letting me know about doing colours in batches. I guess in some spots one colour has to be laid down first before another colour, etc., lot of planning required, it seems.
Re: Tank patch - Wow!! I would believe it if someone said the batch was bought from Indian.
One more question, if I may... how long would it take you and your machine to produce that tank patch? Oh and how big it that tank patch?
The Tank Part of the Scout project took around 60 mins to sew. It consists of three layers of fabric and around 30,000 stitches.
It took a lot longer to design than it did to sew
The Tank section is around 270mm long, which means the entire bike when I have sewn all of the components is going to be just a little short of 1 meter from nose to tail...
Below are a couple of smaller Bike Embroidery projects I have completed.
The Triumph is based on my 1956 TBird The Cafe Racer I copied from the net, and painstakingly converted pen lines to stitches .
Holy Smokes! You meanly made yourself a 1:1 Scale replica of your Scout... in 2 Dimensions.
I do like the pen stroke style Cafe Racer! Nice work.
Nice machine work, do you do contract work, a darkscout patch I'm thinking
...so that would be done in one colour? Black?
I am sure we can work something out Mr. Scout
Hey thanks,,, suspension trade.
what file type do you use.
I can use whatever you like
Ok,, pdf then
Ok, so when I create designs for the machine I output PES files, this is a format Specific to Brother Machines.
I use a MAC to do all the graphic design, then export this to the Digitise Package and convert to stitch data.
If you wanted me to digitise something for you, I can take PDF, TIFF, JPG, PSD, etc. and use my software to render it in Stitch format. This is a manual process, but very satisfying
Once all that is complete I export to a PES file, save to a USB drive and then load that onto the machine....
Hope this answers your question
Yep that's what I was looking for,,, thanks...
My Machine is a Brother Dream Machine XV8500D
