I'm using the Mega Single Hoop for the Viking Designer SE embroidery machine, because my design is too long for any other hoop. When I try to embroider, however, I get the message "Design outside hoop...
1. If the design came from the internet or a design package, it's possible that it's "center" has not been centered properly. To correct this you need to open the design in the Husqvarna Viking software and click on the "Center in Hoop" icon. That function redefines the center of the design so it will align properly in any hoop that it fits within. If you have 3d software, after clicking on that icon you physically have to put the black crosshair that designates the center in the design, in the very middle of the hoop and then save the design to your computer, then send it to the machine. The 4d software automatically centers the design in the hoop when you click on the icon.
If you have the software and you "combine" any designs together you must always click on the center design icon to recalculate or redefine the center position and then move the design's center to the middle of the hoop before saving the design. This way you center the designs center positoin around the needle position. Meaning that when you hit the start button on the machine, where ever the needle is, is where the center of your design is.
I hope this helps
