If you have Bernina Designer 5 you can get free upgrade at the Bernina website. I have. The new Bernina 780 and 830 now accept designs in PES format . Great as most designs come in PES format.

I have an aurora 440, what is the best digitalising software I can get for it to create my own embroidery? I tend to freemotion all my work but I got the embroidery unit for my birthday, and it only came with the v4 lite ;)

No other software (at least free) will convert to ART only Bernina and Wilcom will. Bernina machines recognizes dst (I think) and you may be able to use that on your machine.

When the software tells your it is a Grade A, B, C that means that Grade A is a Bernina digitized (or Wilcom) design and is of the best stitch quality, Grade B is of a lesser quality and Grade C is of course even a lesser quality. Hope I explaned that ok. "A" will stitch better then "B" etc. that's because every time you convert a design it losses some of it's stitch quality.

Hope that helped a little.

Thank you. Not yet, but continuing to investigate. My local dealer is closed today, but I'll check in with them tomorrow.

Hope all is well with you.

Hi SewCalGal, I hope that you were able to get help with the software problem. :-)

To clarify, my Bernina SW saves designs as an ART file for my machine. It also allows me to change the format, but when I use my Bernina SW to save as a PES format I'm finding "some" people are having problems opening it in their SW and/or machines. As such, I'm trying to clarify if anyone using the Bernina Designer Plus SW has experienced a similar problem....ideally, I'm trying to find out what I'm doing wrong with my Bernina SW or if it is a bug. I'll also try to check with the dealer this week to see if they have any experience with this problem and have a recommendation.

I can get the art files over to pes onto my card with the magic box, but can't get the pes over to art files. Explorations sizer will also change the art over to pes i believe.

Any Bernina Artista Designer Plus 5.0 SW users in this forum? I am curious:
1) Do you have plans to upgrade to 6.0?
2) Do you do much sharing of your designs to those with non-Bernina machines? I'm having problems formating files to PES format, as it seems some other SW pkgs (e.g. Embird) or machines are having problems opening it. I'm not sure what is going on and starting to investigate.

Thank you so much for the help. I will have to check Ebay. I don't have an account on there but my daughter in law does. I have been working with the Sewing Center where I bought the machine and will ask them about software also. They are the ones who told me to get the free version of explorations which should be able too. I have trouble with it telling me that it can't save my designs because they aren't grade A or B art... whatever that
