Altair

Description

Send your creativity into a new galaxy with the Baby Lock Altair. It makes realizing your sewing and embroidery projects a reality thanks to IQ Technology™ that allows you to wirelessly transfer images to your machine from your smart device using the IQ Intuition™ Positioning App for perfect design placement in the hoop or design creation in IQ™ Designer.

IQ INTUITION™ POSITIONING APP

Use the IQ Intuition Positioning App to take a photo of your fabric in a special hoop and transfer it wirelessly to the Altair. The image will display onscreen in lifelike color and sharp resolution, allowing you to position your design exactly where you want it, how you want it – every time.

IQ DESIGNER

Create your own embroidery designs with ease. Take a photo with the IQ Intuition Positioning App and wirelessly transmit it to the Altair! Draw directly on the screen or if you’re feeling inspired by an existing art file, simply upload it to the Altair through the USB drive. Your art will be instantly digitized with the colors and fill stitches you choose.

WIRELESS CAPABILITY

Use your favorite embroidery design software like Palette (version 11 or higher, sold separately) to wirelessly transmit your designs from your computer to the Altair.
