Create your own embroidery designs with ease. Take a photo with the IQ Intuition Positioning App and em>wirelessly transmit it to the Altair 2! Draw directly on the screen or if you’re feeling inspired by an existing art file, simply upload it to the Altair 2 through the USB drive. Your art will be instantly digitized with the colors and fill stitches you choose.
Use the 2-point positioning function, with needle beam, to preview the position of your embroidery design. Then, adjust the position and angle for precise placement. Your embroidery will be perfectly placed every time.
IQ Intuition Monitoring® App
Keep track of your project’s progress with this convenient feature that alerts your phone when the bobbin needs to be changed, if a thread breaks, if a thread needs to be changed and when stitching is done.
