Question about Bernina Artista 180

Software not opening designs

Hello, I bought some designs from a couple of digitizers a couple of weeks ago and when I try to open them in my bernina version 5.0 software I get this error message-The file format does not match the expected format for this extension. Native designs may have been created in a more recent version & updating your system may allos the design to open. For other design files, the source software may be creating non-standard formats. Check with source file. --These are digitzers I have used several times and they have not changed anything. Any help with this would be appreciated. Lavannia

Sorry to inform you but your machine only sews 4" x 4" . The arm on the machine can only move 4 inches up and down and 4 inches left and right.
The size of the hoop does not affect this. If you have a multi position hoop you can sew multi 4 x 4 areas without re hooping.

SOURCE: DOES THE BERNINA BERNETTE DECO 600 ACCEPT .ART

Not sure if you found anything out, but Deco 600 uses PES format only.
If you have the software (Deco Wizard) sometimes you can change it to PES and save the design.
Good luck

SOURCE: when stitching the design the upper thread keeps

The tension is not properly set for embroidery, try to rethread totally new. Sometimes it is also caused by broken thread inside the machine, you can open it with the supplied L-shaped tool on the left side of the machine where the lamp is located and than take it out with a tweezer.

SOURCE: can you upgrade Bernina artisa designer plus

The Bernina site has the official downloads of software updates and upgrades which are available. The site needs your specific ino, which I don't have, so I am directing you to their site.
http://www.berninausa.com/news_search-n32-sUS.html

I did find several warnings regarding using other downloaded software for Bernina machines.

Good Luck!

Does the Deco 340 Embroidery Machine use .ART or .EXP?


According to the manual for the Bernette Deco 340, the machine only reads .EXP+ files. ART files need to be converted to the EXP file type using the Bernina Embroider Software. (Even the designs on the Studio Bernina CD need the ART files converted to EXP.)

The manual is available from the Bernina support site: http://www.bernina.com/en-US/Support-5/Machines-en/bernette-deco-en . The direct link to the manual is http://www.bernina.com/getdoc/c6cc51e0-d5e9-4cb1-a7be-f164c0f4fdff/deco340_EN_GZD . (Note: you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to access the manual.)

I'm surprised that you were able to get any .art files to work until recently.

I hope this helps.

Hello I bought a second hand bernina 1090. But it went wrong . No matter which button I clik, it doesn't sew the stitches i choose. I want to open the machine to have a look, but I tried to get off all...


I wish that I could tell you that there are free books available but I the least expensive service manual I found was $17.99, at www.sewingmanuals.net, and an instruction manual pdf download for $10 at www.sewingmanual.com, you can try googling and see if you find more ideas. Otherwise it seems like you are in a bind because unless we could see it, I don't know how to help you.

I purchased a CD Rom embroidery which had the usual formats on its cover, including art. which is what I need. I could open the CD on my computer, but when I tried to send it to my Artista 180, it told me...


How did you try to transfer the ART design to your 180? It needs Artlink by Bernina to do so or the Bernina Designer program. There are different ART versions and as I know, only the Designer can convert it to the version that your model can handle. I also own some CDs and never had any problem transferring any to a Personal Design card or stitching them out with my Bernina 165.

I can't install Bernina Version 4 on my VISTA Operating system PC


As far as I know, Bernina version doesn't work on Windows Vista, you have to upgrade to the next Bernina Designer version which is Vista compatible.

Connection problem with computer to sewing machine and reader/writer


Hello,
It is not true that the 180 is not compatible with new software.
I'm owning a artista 180 from 2002 and just installed the software designer V5+ on a laptop with windows vista.
The only problem was that there was no serial port on the laptop, now I have a new cable with USB ans serial output and the software works very well !!
When you contact Bernina you will get the same answer.

HOW TO DOWNLOAD PROJECTS FROM THE INTERNET


Download free designs from website: www.annthegran.com , click on free designs and save to your desktop. The format will be in zip format. Unzip the file by clicking on the icon. The design will open in pes format. Drag the file to a new folder that you can create, MY DESIGNS. Open futura software, go to file, open, MY DESIGNS and click on your design. Enjoy!
