What Customers are Saying about DRAWings PRO

I am very impressed with DRAWings PRO. It’s actually amazing! I’ve been digizing since 1989, (I think I’m a fair digizer). I use DRAWings PRO for converting customer logos to embroidery. DRAWings has really cut down my setup time.

The Shirt Stop – Whittier, CA

Words cannot express how much DRAWings PRO has benefited our business. It is simple to use. Working late one night, we realized our embroidery file was too small. We were able to import it into DRAWings PRO and increase the size and were able to complete the job. This is just one of the many reasons why we recommend this software.

More Custom Graphics – Sanger, TX

I have been using Wilcom for several years, “struggling.” With the new DRAWings PRO, I could do more in just a few clicks than I ever could before. It is AMAZING! It is what I have been looking for! My first sew out looked great, and all did was dropped the graphic in, saved the file, and ran it! It is as easy as they make it look. Using the templates and graphics from Digital Art Solutions, I can screen print and embroider the same file! Can’t get any easier than that!

Add a point direction and make all satin stitches start from that point and end at the outline of the object.  This creates a beautiful ray-like effect with satin stitches. 

  • Convert any photo to a beautiful PaintStitch masterpiece

  • Convert fill to center line

With the “Convert fill to center line” function you have the ability to change a fill area made with Satin, Step, Piping etc. into Satin serial or Running stitch.

  • Create designs with blended thread colors (gradient fill)

Blending colors is now possible with the new gradient fill function. By blending two or more overlapping shapes with gradient fill you can create beautiful fading color effects that change the look and feel of the design completely. You can control the gradient percentage and easily change its direction.

  • Automatic floral design creation

This is a new revolutionary feature which dynamically creates floral designs and fill areas to apply to your designs. You may combine this feature with your own designs and even set your own flower designs to be used by the floral creation. The combinations are unlimited. 

  • Ambience quilting

How's DRAWings PRO different than traditional digitizing software?

DRAWings X is a departure from traditional CAD-based embroidery software. The programs use a simple, user-friendly graphical user interface. There is no digitizing involved, embroidery is being created using artificial intelligence to convert vector artwork to production-ready sew files. There is no requirement to understand the intricate techniques of traditional digitizing. It is a simple and effective solution to make professional-quality embroidery accessible to everyone.

Can I use DRAWings PRO on a MAC?

YES! DRAWings PRO is available for use on PC and Mac! There is even a dark theme to match your Mac OS!

Does DRAWings PRO come with pre-digitized embroidery fonts?

YES! More than 200 pre-digitized fonts added into the software, made from professional embroiderers, for high quality lettering sew outs. Each pre-digitized font is previewed during the selection process.

Does DRAWings PRO include name dropping?

YES! Name drop is the easiest way to create multiple designs with different names. Create the designs you want to apply the “Name drop,” write the names that you want to be embroidered, and apply it. The software will create multiple designs one over the other, which their only difference will be the Text (Name) you have added in the Name Drop list. The designs can be sewn out one after the other.
