Design File Server

Barudan's Design File Server is an easy to use network program that connects up to 8 "K", X", "V" or "D" series Barudan machines to a PC. With this software installed, designs can be downloaded directly from a folder on the PC's hard drive, eliminating the need to carry disks and CF cards to and from the machine.

How it works:

Design File Server is a program that runs on Windows 10, 8, 7, or Vista. On the left side of the screen is a file browser, for locating embroidery files. On the right side of the screen are machine queues, for up to 8 machines. Using DFS takes 3 steps:


1. Locate design files
Browse your PC Hard disk or CD to find the patterns to be sewn. The thumbnail viewer shows image and stitch information- reads 7 popular embroidery formats.  Icons at top of screen provide quick sorting and searching. Select the pattern.

2. Drag & Drop on machine queue
Stack up to 100 designs in the Queue. You can have a common queue, or a separate Queue for each machine


3. Download from machine
From the machine automat, press the Network Icon. The design files in the queue are listed. Select one, press a button, and a few seconds later, it's downloaded into the machine.


NEW FEATURE: Watched Folders!
In this mode, DFS works in the background. Setup a watched folder(s) on your PC, and then hide DFS. Drag and drop embroidery designs using Windows Explorer, or save to the machine folder right from your Digitizing or Editing program. DFS stays in the background.

Automatic File Handling- option to automatically remove design from queue once it has been downloaded- prevent duplication! Or, set to remove designs from queue after a set number of days.


When viewing the files in the queue, pressing the "?" icon brings up a small thumbnail of the design, and pattern statistics. View and verify the pattern info before downloading!
