The most anticipated innovation in quilting has arrived. What is QBOT? QBOT stands for 'Quilting Based on Technology." It is a new, totally computerized quilting system. Why pay someone to create a professional quilt, when the QBOT can do it for you? The QBOT offers professional results…easily and automatically. Simply put, the QBOT does everything for you. Automatic hands-free movement creates the perfect design that would be impossible to do by hand. You are now the professional! Just think about all of those quilting projects that you started, but never finished. The QBOT will complete your quilting projects in a fraction of the time. Design more intricate quilting than you ever imagined. With more than 18 quilting designs included, you can start creating beautiful designs immediately. If you prefer, you can “record” your very own one-of-a-kind pattern and repeat it the same way, or shrink it, anywhere you want on the quilt. Take pride in professional results, the easy way. Own your QBOT today!
QBOT V3 is our newest product - available for purchase as an upgrade to earlier firmware versions of QBOT or as a new-in-the-box complete unit.
Many design features are built into the interface, like Design Management, Line Quilting, Mirror Image, and Nesting; as well as improved features you're already acquainted with like Pattern Quilting, %Restart, Another/Chain, and Overlay. QBOT V3 requires an Android-based tablet with Bluetooth®. With the many Android options available on the market, you'll be able to get the screen size which best suits your needs (NOTE: our beta testers highly recommend 10" models). The benefit of the tablet interface is that the QBOT will never go out of style. As new tablets come out with new features, you can always have a fresh look to QBOT - it's your choice.

Updating the QBOT Firmware When you turn on your QBOT, it starts running its operating system. This operating system is
called ‘firmware.’ Upgrades to the firmware may be available from time to time. These firmware
upgrades may include additional features, or changes to the existing features. We recommend
running the latest version of the firmware. The latest version of the firmware is available through
the myQBOT.com website through the ‘SUPPORT’ section.
