A taste of what Wilcom is bringing in 2019

64-bit is right around the corner

EmbroideryStudio e4.2 COMING SOON

As Wilcom flies towards 2019, users from around the world have been anticipating what they will see in the New Year. Well, the answer is an exciting new flagship release, EmbroideryStudio e4.2!

Most importantly, this update is FREE to all existing EmbroideryStudio e4 users. The new release delivers an assortment of both productivity and speed improvements, making this version the most robust and powerful that Wilcom has ever developed.

64-bit support makes it FASTER and more RELIABLE

EmbroideryStudio e4.2 introduces 64-bit Windows operating system support. This enables the design software to take full advantage of your computer’s memory and processing power.

“64-Bit support allows a digitiser to use higher resolution images and much larger design files when creating their embroidery designs. Previously, 32-bit versions were inhibited by the PC memory limitations. They are now free to create far more extensive designs.” explains Brenden Prazner, Senior Product Manager at Wilcom.

“Opening, saving and processing embroidery design files is faster with 64-bit support, boosting a digitiser’s daily productivity and output. This is something every business is looking to achieve.”


New productivity tools and easier to use

Wilcom has put a keen focus on making their existing tools easier and more productive in this update. Some of these include:

  • Displaying the four most recently used fonts at the top of the font list. This greatly reduces time wasted searching for your common fonts.
  • Enhanced font preview display. Now with a solid color fill, you can instantly preview any font directly within the list. This includes custom lettering too.
  • Auto-scroll to the last viewed font. A subtle enhancement that collectively saves a lot of time.
  • Auto-scroll to the selected object in the Color-Object List. This enhances editing productivity.
  • Graphical digitizing tools help you remember the last selected stitch type
  • Quick switch with the space bar between the Digitize Open Shape and Digitize Closed Shape tools

Auto-Digitising enhancements

In a world where outsourcing the creation of complicated embroidery designs is becoming more and more common, Wilcom’s Auto-Digitising enhancements in EmbroideryStudio e4.2 are a welcome addition. This helps an embroidery business to easily and quickly create embroidery logos from their clean vector graphics.

“We have greatly improved our colour detection and shape creation technology, helping to create cleaner vector shapes used in the embroidery conversion process.” says Prazner.

“The end result is better and more accurate embroidery, reducing businesses need to rely on expensive and time-consuming outsourcing of their embroidery designs. It also puts them in control of their workflow, resulting in improved turn-around times and customer support.”


Free design templates

EmbroideryStudio e4.2 has added brand new embroidery-ready design templates into the software. These include a variety of business logos such as cafes, cleaning and construction services. There are also many sports logos for golf, football, basketball and more.

“The design templates are perfect for small runs or to create a quick logo for a new client. Simply select a logo template, swap out the text, and you’re ready to sew.”

New design templates will be released each month, ready to download and import into your library.

FREE UPDATE for existing EmbroideryStudio e4 users

Wilcom’s EmbroideryStudio e4.2 will be released as a FREE UPDATE to all existing EmbroideryStudio e4 users. To download when available, simply visit

What I'd like to see is a search bar to be able to type the font we want. All design software has this facility. It's needed in E4 I feel.

Очень хочется обновления. В Wilcome4 есть функция "пробойник" для ришелье, но она не активна для моей машины Brother PR-1000e, так же как и функция создания дизайнов в переставных пяльцах 360х360 мм . Приходится пользоваться дополнительно программой PE-Design 10.

Очень жду обновления, так как ту е4, которую вы представили на рынок, требует больших доработок, часто зависает и пишет, что не хватает памяти, особенно после сглаживания кривых, с алфавитом - это вообще такой ужас, невозможно позиционирование на последующие шрифты при их переборе.

I am very excited about the new update. Thank you for a wonderful product. Is Wilcom planning on ever updating the Auto split for satin columns? All you have is the single setting for Auto split. Your competitors are way ahead of you with multiple settings to create different Auto split effects. Some even allow you to create an auto split where you cannot even see that there is a split.
