There is a discrepancy between how Wilcom defines the sizes of stones and how GemMaster describes the stones. This causes a spacing issue when importing the files to Gemmaster. The result is dropped stones. The key is to set up both programs to use the same values for calculating stones size and thus stone spacing.
Prior to designing Bling! you will want to setup your stone pallet in Wilcom. In the case of the popular ss10 set the size to the top of the ss10 range of 2.89mm. For the ss16 we will again use the top of the range using 3.99mm. If you go any higher than this Wilcom will describe the stone as ss11 and ss17 respectfully.
Click on the Options button just to the right of the Bling! file format drop down list.
This will open the Adobe Illustrator options box. Change the Capability drop down list to Adobe Illustrator 8.0. Click "Ok" taking you back to the Multi-decoration Export dialog box.
Determine where you would like the .ai file export to and click "Export." In this folder you will find a file named YourFileName_BLG.ai. In the example above the file would be named RS-CEL0002_BLG.ai.
The "AI File Open" dialog box will open. Select;
Then alter the set size to match the sizes used in Wilcom and click "Ok." The placement of stones will now match what was visible in Wilcom.
While the "AI File Option" box will present itself on each subsequent file import, the setting of the sizes will not have to be repeated. GemMaster will automatically retain this information.
