DG16 promises more ways to creatively personalise products than ever before. Fifteen new professionally digitised fonts have been added to the software as standard, bringing the total number to over 180, while the new ColorIT tool can be used to tint an entire design lighter or darker or to add a colour theme such as 'spring' or 'baby girl'. "Not only can users make more unique and intricate designs, the process has also been sped up considerably," says Pulse. "The new dynamic ribbon interface displays only the tools that are available to be used with whichever type of segment you have selected. We’ve also added a one-click conversion feature that allows users to change the segment type by right clicking on icons instead of navigating through menus. Other timesavers like the Rounded Corner tool and Drag Anchor Path have also been added to the software." BriTon Leap: Embrilliance Embroidery Software BriTon Leap reports that it will soon be releasing version 1.161 of its modular and multi-seat Embrilliance Embroidery software platform. Following its award- winning, automated 3D Foam feature, BriTon Leap has created several additions that it says addresses its growing audience of commercial users. Its Essentials and Enthusiast products are said to benefit from not only refined branching and redigitised native fonts, but also from multiple new sequencing methods, including those intended for cap embroidery and new trim settings respecting both automatic and manual methods, as well as time-saving shortcuts and UI improvements. The StitchArtist digitising range includes new drawing tools for parametric shapes and three- point arcs, and improvements to bezier curve handling. Another addition is a native, object-based font publisher to StitchArtist level 3. BriTon Leap comments: “Unlike competing software suites’ costly add-on modules that only create raw font files, this free, integrated feature allows any StitchArtist 3 digitiser to create and publish object-based fonts in an automatically installable file format, ready for sale and distribution to Embrilliance software users, complete with extensive copyright information and digital rights management settings allowing complete creator control.” All updates are free to existing Embrilliance owners. Brother: Production RIP If time is money, how can you save time, asks Brother? According to the manufacturer of the Brother GTX, while a fast printer is key, efficient production is also important. Brother works with Brain Industries to develop solutions for optimised work processes for all of its customers. Whether you run a small or large shop, Brother offers software solutions that cover the whole production process or just parts of it, depending on your needs. “Let’s start with the Production RIP which can help you easily RIP one file or thousands,” says Brother. “Install the RIP, make a few simple settings and drag-and-drop your graphic files to the folders. The rest is handled automatically and the output is ready. “Our Production RIP is prepared to effectively convert graphic files into print files, handle the colour accuracy and even generate a barcode sheet which can be used during the process.” To optimise the pre-treatment process there is the Pretreat Optimizer, which is said to help set the pre-treatment zone and spray amount accurately for each print file. The company continues: “The Search and Execute tool allows you to print any print file on any Brother DTG printer in your production by scanning the barcode or using the search field.” DG16 is the latest software release from Pulse Embrilliance Embroidery version 1.161 will soon be available from BriTon Leap Brother works with Brain Industries to develop software for those printing with the Brother GTX
