Multi-Decoration Support #371
I was wondering if we could add in support for multi-decoration methods of apparel decoration. Particularly with a multi-file export and with what we can see on the Approval Sheet of the Print PDF.
Use Cases: Simulation of applique color instead of just having negative space in the approval sheet; to visualize part of the project that is to be sequins, print, cut vinyl, and/or rhinestones.
Mult-Decorating File Export:
I'm thinking for this we have in the "Save As" portion, we have another zip option and this one would be for exporting vector file(s) as well as stitch file(s) that are zipped up. Still have the manual tick box option for the various embroidery formats, but also have a single tick box that is just for multi-decoration export. Or we could add it into the already existing zip "Save As" function.
Each layer that is marked with the new "pass thru, but don't convert to stitch info" is it's own file. The naming of that file to hopefully be taken from the name of it's respective layer. I think this will be more helpful when having layers that are for different things in the same project file; applique, rhinestone, sequins etc, especially if there are multiple colors of say rhinestones, each color is it's own layer and named accordingly ("Bling - Red" for example).
It's common to have HTV along with embroidery. While you can embroider over it, I tend to just have them in the same project. They may be very close to one another.
Rhinestones are typically done last. Sequins, if using a spangles machine, are done last. I do them at the same time since my embroidery machine can handle that.
My printing method of choice is sublimation and I typically did that first. Although I have actually did sublimation on white poly thread as well.
