for Embird 2003 and above
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
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 font. It is a conversion
program. Our other product, Embird Alphabets, is a lettering system totally different
to Font Engine. Alphabets are predigitized embroidery fonts.
Vector graphics import function is included in Font Engine price
Import EMF and WMF vector graphic files into Embird
Studio and turn them into embroidery designs without redrawing them!
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

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.
