Free Embroidery Software and BX Format

Embrilliance Express FREE Embroidery Software and BX Format

What is a BX file and how can I use it?  BX format is a special pre-mapped embroidery format that is able to be installed into Embrilliance software.To install it into the embroidery software, simply drag and drop the BX format directly onto the computer screen, which then allows that font to be used from your keyboard--so all you have to do is type out the name you want--instead of importing one letter at a time and having to move the position of each imported letter. After you are finished typing the name/ word into the embroidery software screen, simply SAVE AS your desired format and sent it to your embroidery machine. :)

First, download the Free Embrilliance Express for your operating system (PC or MAC) from the website:

To use the free embroidery software:

You will want to install the embroidery software after you download it. Please note: Windows users must unzip the file before installing.
When you open the embroidery software, you will be prompted to either enter in a serial number
OR to continue using the program in Express mode, simply choose Express mode.

Embrilliance Express mode will provide you the interface to use the designs that you have just purchased as a keyboard font or library entry.


The next step is adding the font files to this embroidery software:
Once you have the program installed, you can EITHER drag and drop the BX file onto the open program OR double click on the BX file and it will automatically open and install into Embrilliance.
Now that your font is installed, you may use it to create lettering designs.
Click the ‘A’ on the toolbar, toward the far right. This will add a lettering design with the letters “ABC”. You can now use the Properties window to the right (click on the Letters tab) to change the font and type in the lettering or words you'd like to use.

The Help menu has more specific instructions on using the fonts.
