Can Pre-Design convert PES files to IQ format? I'm thinking about purchasing the Intelliquilter and was just wondering since I have a ton of PES files?

You need a dxf format to convert to iqp format for Intelliquilter.

Intelliquilter provides a dxf to iqp converter software program for designers.

Pro-Q and Pre-Design Do not save to iqp.

You have to find a way to go from pes to dxf to iqp.

Thanks Joann, I was just wondering. I'm almost over the decision hump to get the IQ.

What are PES files? I know that Pre-Design can save as DXF if that helps any. You don't need any converter program to get the DXF files into IQP format. You can just load DXF into Intelliquilter and the conversion is done automatically.

PES files are the stitch files for the Brother embroidery machines. They are created using the Brother PE Design software.

Also, you cannot convert a PES file to any file using Pre-Design software. Pre-Design lets you draw and then save into many types of files but you cannot go from a sew file to an IQP file using Pre-Design. You need a dxf file and the IQ software to convert to IQP (I don't have a IQ - I have a CQ). I wish there was a way to convert my PES files or even my DST files to a CQ format, but you can't do that yet.

With Pre-Design Studio you can save (export) as DXF file. That DXF file can be opened in IntelliQuilter without any conversion.

Pes-files are embroidery stitch files, containing lines as well as fills and colors, all separate objects. "Computerwise" pes-files are totally different from DXF files, so there's no conversion possible without re-digitizing.

(Most pes-files wouldn't be suitable for a quilt system because of the various layers and density).

The easiest way would be to open an image of the pes-file in Pre-Design via menu Background, then take the curve tool and trace the lines you want in the quilt pattern. *Think quilt* while tracing and find continuous lines. Then save and choose File > Export DXF. Open the DXF in IQ and sew :)

Thanks Loes. The PES files that I was thinking about was the simple single line "redwork designs". I think the curve tool with trace will do the trick!!! Now I just have to get an IQ for my "gator".
