Machine Embroidery – Registration Issues

Whale Stitching – density 4, pull compensation 0.1

I’ve been working on my digitising tutorials. I wanted to stitch something out and get an idea of what works on my machine. As you can see it is quite puckered and the black out line is quite off.

I reduced the density and increased the pull compensation in this one …

Density 5, pull compensation 0.3


The changes haven’t really made much difference. In my third (and final for a while) attempt I changed the angle of the fill from 90° to 80° and used the Create Outline from Fill tool.

Density 5, pull compensation 0.3, fill angle 80


The registration is still off (the outline is not exactly outlining the shapes). Things are improving, but I am not a fan of the densely stitched design, so I shall move on and come back to this later.
