Creating Crystal Templates with Artistic Digitizer

The versatility of the Artistic Digitizer is amazing, whether it’s machine embroidery or incorporating it in to digital cutter projects. Here is a fun tutorial on creating a crystal template to jazz up any project.

Open the Artistic Digitizer software and check that you have the Cutter as your designated machine and select Create New.

From the Wingdings font, select the flower and click Insert.

Select the 2 centre aspects of the design and deleted them.

Scroll down the properties menu and change the Fill to a Single Line.

From the left menu bar select Shape and Ellipse from the menu. Create a circle in the centre of the flower.

Select Crystals from the properties, change the colour to Sun and select Circular as the Fill

  1. With Artistic Crystals, you get a system that will allow you to create unique products to sell. Once a custom template is created, it can be used over and over, allowing you to easily and economically produce multiples of any given product. We also found the adhesive material could be used several times. 

    1. Yes it is correct.

  2. This is so helpful, Thankyou, I have had my cutter and software for 2 years, I have stumbled, played with the software, I love it.
    I have nearly always added the fusible on the back of fabrics, but I will use your technique in the future.
    Its great setting up these steps, for us out in the world is terrific.
    Thanks, Again
