Font Engine - Plug-in for Embird Basic

Plug-in for Embird 2013 and above [Must have Embird Basic 2013 or newer to use]
This is a downloaded product and a CD is not available.

Embird Font Engine is a tool for conversion of text made with TrueType or OpenType font into an embroidery design. There are many adjustable lettering parameters such as size, density, fill and outline modes as well as characters layout and deformations in Font Engine. When finished, lettering is compiled into stitches and put into Embird Editor for final adjustment and save in desired embroidery format. Font Engine is accessible also from Studio's interactive lettering. When used from Studio, Font Engine produces text in a vector (outline) form that can be further edited in Studio.

Please note
: Font Engine does not include any fonts. It is a conversion program - it converts the True Type Fonts that are installed on your computer. The other Font/Alphabet product that Embird offers, Embird Alphabets, is a lettering system totally different from the Font Engine. The Embird Alphabets are predigitized embroidery fonts.

Font Engine produces lettering in a large size scale, from about 5 milimeters (1/5") up to 30 cm (12"). There is no separate installation file for Font Engine. Evaluation version
is included in every installation of Embird. However, you will have to purchase and register Font Engine separatelly from the main Embird program, otherwise only several characters are available in every font. After purchase and insertion of registration password, evaluation version turns into full version. No additional download or installation needed. Use "Editor -> Insert -> Font Engine Text" command to access Font Engine.


Delivery Method:

  • If you have Embird installed, you already have the Font Engine installed as well. You just need to purchase by adding to cart above and you will receive the registration information by e-mail within 24 hours
