Turning Angle Embossed Fill

We can use the Turning Angle Fill tool to create embossed fill objects.

 

What you'll learn 
We can use the Turning Angle Fill tool to create embossed fill objects.

To show how to create Turning Angle Embossed Fill, we will use the Pieces6 bitmap from the Embroidery Album.

We plan to use Hoop ST (Standard Hoop). To choose your hoop, click the down arrow in the Hoop Selection box to see the choices.
Image
Click on the hoop you want to use. It will appear in the Hoop Selection box and will show on your design screen.

Note: The MC11000 Hoop ST has the same dimensions as the MC10001 Hoop A.

To insert the Pieces 6 bitmap on the design screen,

Click Image, Insert Image...
Image
The Open dialog box will appear. If necessary, change the Look in: box to the Embroidery Album, which was placed on your C: drive when DigitizerPro was installed. 
Image
Click Pieces6 once to see the bitmap in the Preview window. Click Open to bring the bitmap to the design screen.

Note: If you do not see the bitmap on the design screen, click the Display Images icon.
Image
Pieces6 is a small bitmap. We can enlarge the bitmap to fill the hoop area.

If the bitmap is not already selected (having 8 black boxes around it), click on the bitmap to select it.
Image
Double-click on the bitmap to bring up its only property, which are its dimensions. Increase both the width and the height of the bitmap to 500%.
Image
Click OK to set the new size.

Click on the bitmap and drag it left so that the right side of the bitmap lines up with the right side of the red box in the hoop. 
Image
Click the flyout arrow on the Turning Angle Fill tool to see the Turning Angle flyout toolbar. 
Image
The Turning Angle flyout toolbar has three icons. Click Turning Angle Embossed Fill to activate the tool. 
Image
To set the tool's parameters, click the Object Details icon to see the Object Details dialog box.
Image
Click Stitch Type Embossed Fill on the Fill Stitch tab. Click the down arrow in the Pattern box to see the embossed fill patterns. Slide the slider down all the way down to the end. Click Ziggy5 to select as the pattern. Click OK to set the parameter.
Image
Click pairs of points, always in the same manner (up, down, up, down, OR down, up, down, up), from the stem of the leaf to the tip of the leaf. It does not matter which manner you choose, as long as you do it consistently throughout the digitizing. 
Image
Press the Enter key on your keyboard to generate the embroidery.
