EPCwin - The Software for Professional Punches
The creation of embroidery pattern data for the various embroidery processes is still one of the biggest challenges for professional embroidery. Here, the unique, modularly designed software EPCwin sets whole new standards in terms of functionality and ease of use.
Whether for badges, logos, applications, designs for haute couture, tablecloths, curtains, allover and etching embroidery - EPCwin has all the program levels from designing to drawing and puncturing to editing. As a user, you are always optimally managed and supported in all work steps. That means: fast and efficient work.
EPCwin handles all popular image formats from various sources such as scanners, internet, clipart. Effective functions are available for editing these templates. Thus, for example, Combine scanned sub-images exactly to a complete template. Specially developed functions for the drawing technique allow the targeted creation of contours, regardless of the quality of the image templates. Alternatively, vector files in the formats dxf, wmf, emf and ai can be imported from other drawing programs. Drawing the exact contours of a pattern is the basis for a high-quality embroidery design.
The most important functions at a glance:
Parallels to free-form curves
Free editing of all line bases
Simple selection of objects by avoiding
Change selected objects by turning, compressing, stretching, copying, moving - graphically or numerically
Own administration for saving and loading character elements
Acquisition of True Type fonts as contours for monograms
Helper functions such as grids, guides, comment texts
Automatic rapport also with head and needle selection
In addition to multi-head embroidery, EPCwin also supports Schiffli embroidery. EPCwin offers Schiffli design for professional users. A large number of automatic programs for drawing, drilling and etching causes an enormous saving in drawing time.
There are various methods available for the rational generation of stitch data.
Punch on the screen: The procedure is particularly recommended, if the template has embroidery-technically usable forms. The contours are created when using automatic punch programs. This saves a lot of time.
The transfer of existing drawing lines: Existing drawing lines which are imported by EPCwin or other drawing programs can be selected when punching. By shortening, extending, connecting and supplementing these lines with the takeover, the user has every freedom.
The combination of both methods: In difficult sample passages you use the drawing functions with subsequent adoption of these lines. This simplifies and accelerates your work process.
