Not sure whether you should use TrueSizer deskop software or TrueSizer web?
Here are the details on how they differ.
By the way, you may choose to use both versions. Use TrueSizer Web when you’re away from your desk, save to your Microsoft SkyDrive, and the files will be waiting for you on your desktop computer!
This viewing software allows every person in the company to view embroidery files. It is also a great product to give your embroidery customers to speed up design approval and more.
Wilcom TrueSizer e3 is the tool you need to achieve quality scaling and resizing for designs in .EMB file format while keeping the original shapes, density and stitch parameters. Open, view and size any supported embroidery file and then convert it to a wide range of formats.
NEW! You now have two ways to use Wilcom TrueSizer:
This free software makes it easy for Wilcom customers and their customers to work with WILCOM .EMB files.With hundreds of thousands of TrueSizer registered users (and counting!), it's safe to say that it has become an industry standard for viewing, sizing and converting embroidery files.
Now you can access your embroidery files on the go! Wilcom TrueSizer Web is a free web app which you can access on your PC, Mac and mobile devices such as iPad or Android devices.
Work with Wilcom .EMB files without having a Wilcom digitizing system, and without having to download any software. Work with designs on your local computer, or directly to your Microsoft SkyDrive cloud storage account.
Note: Truesizer Web has slightly less functionality than the downloadable desktop TrueSizer application.
Open, view and size any supported embroidery file and then convert it to a wide range of formats. If you find a CND file you like, open it in TrueSizer, scale it to fit your intended purpose, and save it as a .DST file. TrueSizer opens over 40 file formats and saves files to over 20 formats. Save your files in Wilcom's all in one EMB format, or in formats compatible with 30 embroidery and sewing machines.
The ability to access and modify designs is central to all activities in the embroidery company. TrueSizer uses Wilcom’s original .EMB file format, the only one in the industry to include both object outlines and stitches. So, it scales to perfection, recalculating the stitches from the outlines and the object properties.
Obtaining customer approval for a design can be time-consuming and expensive. Give customers TrueSizer and they can receive .EMB files instantly by email, check designs in TrueView and give immediate feedback. They can even do their own simple editing.
Locating designs, printing production worksheets and writing production disks doesn't need to be done by the digitizer.
TrueSizer enables other team members to create customer approval and production worksheets and write embroidery disks (particularly useful in businesses with multiple embroidery machine brands/formats).
EMB files can be readily converted to other formats so you don't have to switch back and forth between different programs.
Thread breaks and poor start-/end-point positioning are common causes of production inefficiency. TrueSizer includes small stitch filter and auto start/end control features so production staff can modify designs quickly and efficiently on the factory floor.
Because EMB format combines original outlines (condensed data) with the full original stitch data, customers will receive designs exactly as they were created – complete with any fine-tuning stitch edits that may be included. They can still resize the design from the original outlines with guaranteed rescaling. No confusion switching between multiple expanded and condensed files.

Here’s the list of all the embroidery file formats supported by Wilcom TrueSizer e3.
Object files are high-level digitizing system CAD formats which contain object outlines, object properties and in Wilcom’s case, also stitch data. When you open an original digitized design file in Wilcom TrueSizer, it can be accurately resized while preserving the original stitching effects and correct densities.
Stitch or ‘expanded’ designs are low-level formats for direct use by embroidery machines. They contain only stitch coordinates and machine functions. Stitch files are generally not suited to resizing. Because the stitch count does not change, the density increases or decreases with the design size. Thus you should scale stitch designs by no more than ±5-10% because the densities scale by the same amount.
