Drawings® Pro XI Embroidery Digitizing Software
With its logical workflow and intuitive tools, Drawings Pro is an excellent choice for beginners to embroidery digitizing, yet still offers advanced editing tools that experienced digitizers will appreciate.
Drawings Pro converts vector artwork into embroidery files, and can export any of the most popular file formats, including .dst, .ngs, .pec, .pes, .sew and more. Starting with a photo or other bitmapped image? No problem! Drawings Pro includes tools such as auto-trace and photo-stitch to convert them into embroidery designs.
Complete Stitch Editor
DRAWings includes the ability to adjust every stitch in the design - move, delete, or insert a single stitch or multiple stitches.
Over 200 Pre-Digitized Fonts Included
High quality fonts digitized by professionals for great lettering sew outs. Easily preview fonts during selection process.
Windows® and Mac® Compatible
Most professional digitizing packages are made for Windows® only, but Drawings Pro is fully compatible with Windows or Mac right out of the box. Mac users don't need to worry about dual boot, Parellels® or any other compatibility tricks - DRAWings is natively compatible with the latest Mac OS.
Convert Photos to Stitches
Photo Stitch and Paint Stitch wizards make it easy to convert any photo or other bitmapped image into an embroidery design by using patented advanced algorhithms. A good high resolution photo with good contrast can actually produce great results automatically.
Team Logos with Names Made Easy!
Import or create a team logo, add a list of names, and let Name Drop do the rest! Name Drop will create multiple embroidery designs, each with a different name from your list, ready to sew out one after the other.
Blended Thread Colors (Gradient Fill)
Blend two or more overlapping shapes with the Gradient Fill tool to create the effect of one color fading into another color. You control the gradient percentage and direction.
Automatically Create Floral Designs
Beautiful floral designs and fill areas can be created quickly and easily. You can even include your own flower designs to be used in the automatic floral creation. Easily combine the floral design with any other design.
Create Designs with Curved Stitches
Add curve directions on step filled objects to give them a wavy look. The stitches then automatically follow the curvature of the direction, creating a texture that has a flowing curved look and feel.
Plenty of Embroidery Tools for More Control
From stitch type tools, to editing tools, to color tools, DRAWings PRO has everything you need to take control over the process of creating embroidery designs. Contact MESA for more information on this affordable, easy to learn, and easy to use embroidery software.
Design Browser to Easily Organize and Find Designs
