Other new features include an automatic gap fea- ture, which prevents sequins from being sewn on top of one another, unless desired. It also eliminates unneeded sequins and tackdown stitches where a segment crosses over itself, improving overall design quality. The sequin feature now has a shine effect, making it easier to tell where sequins are being placed while digitizing. It also has a layering sequin tool to make it easier to place repeat sequins and tackdown stitches. To sew down sequins, the Tajima Sequin IV attachment is required. However, if a business does not have the attachment, production can be contracted to another shop or designs can be created for sale to other embroidery businesses.
