How to add my machine and hoops to Hatch
You cannot add additional machines to the V1 Hatch software. You can add additional hoops, which is the most important thing for creating your embroidery design.
If you have a machine you would added, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will add it to the wishlist for future upgrades. However, we cannot guarantee to add all machines.
You have two options for your machine and adding hoops:
You may select another machine model of the same brand for your design. The difference between machine models for one machine model is generally the hoops. The design file format is the same. Therefore, if available you can select the machine model with the hoop list that is very close to your machine's hoop list. For those missed out hoops, you may create customized hoops in your hoop list.
If you do not find a model close or you just don't know, then create your machine as "Others". You can then add your own hoops in the hoop list.
To create new hoops or to add your own hoops to the hoop list:
Select your machine type or select "Other" as your machine type
Now right click on the hoop icon: (1)
then click on "Create" (2)
Another window will open as shown below:
Add the name of your hoop. (3) (I usually add something like the machine name and the hoop size so I know the brand and size but you can add whatever is easy for you to recogonize)
Select the shape of your hoop (4)
Add the height of the sewing field (5)
Add the width of the sewing field (6)
Be sure you are adding the sewing field size and not the outer hoop size!
Click "Save Hoop" (7)
