The Ultimate box products are fully compatible with Vista 64 and Windows 7 operating systems. In April of 2009 we have certified the drivers to assure compliance.

Ultimate Box II Plus has the same functionality as Ultimate Box II (Basic), plus, the software provides full design format conversion, automatic “fit-to-hoop” resizing, rotating, mirroring and more.

  • Automatically convert into a required card format for Brother, Baby Lock, Bernina Deco, Simplicity, White,
  • Viking/Husqvarna, Pfaff and Bernina Artista from any of the read formats.

  • Ultimate box reads many embroidery formats including (at the time of publication) PES, PEC, PHB, PHC, HUS, SHV, VIP, VP3, JEF, JEF+, SEW, DST, EXP, XXX, ART(v1-3), EMB(v1-6), JAN(v1).

  • No limit to the number of designs written to cards other than card space.

  • Read, save and catalogue designs into folders on your computer from re-writable and most pre-programmed design cards.

  • Add / Rename / Explore folders, Delete individual designs, Erase Card and lots of other functions.

  • Automatic Un-Zip. No more time to spend and no additional software to use to open .ZIP design files. Automatically repairs designs even in some corrupted .ZIP files created by other conversion programs.

  • Works flawlessly with all Windows operating systems including XP and Vista. MAC users need to have Virtual Explorer installed.

  • The program does not crash or go away if the box is unplugged!

  • Plug/unplug the Ultimate box as many times as you want, use different boxes of the same type or switch between single slot UB and dual slot UB2.

  • 3-D view to see the thread texture of the design.

  • Print actual-size templates of designs to be written or designs that have been read and stored.

  • Fine tuning of file splits. Control how designs get split when using older formats/machines. No other box program has allowed the user to customize it to the degree the Ultimate box does. Very useful for modern machines which allow higher stitch/color counts.

  • Single-page interface. This is the most user-friendly design for any box program ever. See more than 6 designs at a time. Window layout is adjustable and remembered.

  • Use a Card Area to see what you will be writing to the card. See how full the card will be when you write. Card Gauge shows card capacity used by percent.

  • Pfaff colors used in actual design are written and read. Unlike other embroidery boxes that use standardized palette.
    A comprehensive help system.

  • Languages: English, German and French (at the time of publication).

    Can it get any better?

  • Ultimate Box Plus saves you hundreds of dollars, spent otherwise on the additional software. Ultimate Box Plus provides all features of Ultimate Box Basic, plus, you can:

  • Automatically resize the design with stitches re-calculated to fit the hoop on your embroidery machine.
    Rotate and Mirror designs.

  • Convert embroidery designs from one format into another to write to the card or save in different formats on your computer.

  • Purchase the Ultimate box Plus or upgrade to it and you can do it all from one program!

  • The Ultimate Box allows you to write to a blank embroidery card as many designs as the card can hold. The best results are achieved by using The Ultimate Box ™ with The Ultimate Card ™ that holds about 500,000 stitches total. Write designs in PES format for Brother, BabyLock, Bernina Deco, Simplicity formats and White or, in HUS format for Viking/Husqvarna embroidery machines.

    The Ultimate Box II is equipped with the second card slot that, in addition to capabilities of The Ultimate Box, allows working with cards for Pfaff, Bernina Artista 200 and Bernina Deco 330.

    Ultimate box reads many embroidery formats including (at the time of publication) PES, PEC, PHB, PHC, HUS, SHV, VIP, VP3, JEF, JEF+, SEW, DST, EXP, XXX, ART(v1-3), EMB(v1-6), JAN(v1).

    Save designs to your computer by downloading them from the internet (thousands of free and paid designs), embroidery design cards, CD's, floppy disks, etc. Using the browsing software supplied, browse to the Designs folder, select desired patterns and transfer them to the card.

    The Ultimate box writes to Ultimate cards only and does not write to Pfaff Creative blank card or any other cards.

    However, the Ultimate box reads most cards, depending on the memory chips inside used at the time of manufacturing.

    The Ultimate Card III is needed for Pfaff machine.

    Bernina embroidery machines may be programmed with different versions of Firmware. Some versions of this Firmware may interfere with the data written to the Ultimate card. If the machine does not read designs on the card:

    1. Re-write the card in the Ultimate box.

    2. Slide the Write Protect switch on the card to “ON” and put it into the embroidery machine.

    3. Turn Write Protect “OFF” before writing new designs to the card.

    The procedure above has been tested on Deco 330/340 and older Artista 180/165 machines.
