I am slightly new to this. I have done some embroidery and now I have some designs in the .rar format. How do I convert them to .hus format. :nc: Can someone help me.

You have to find a conversion software. I'm not familiar with the format (sorry). If it is a machine format there should be something to convert it. If it is some sort of picture format like JPEG you'll need to find a way to digitize it in a machine software. You could try the Wilcom trusizer (free) to see what it converts in machine formats. There are some others out there which are free too. It is a little harder to find programs to convert commercial formats to home formats.

Tom? Are you out there for this one???

I believe WILCOM will convert for you and it is free.

rar is a compressed file format. You need to have winrar downloaded on your computer to open it. It's like a zip file where you use winzip to unzip it. I think this one is free if it's not google to find a free one. Hope I helped you. After you uncompress it the program will ask you where you want to put the file. I always opened it to a new folder.
I'm regressing back into my youth, I just have to figure out how I'm going to convience my body to come along with me.

mother in law has it right.... .rar is like .zip, its a compressed file... its used a lot in Europe... don't know why it's not as popular here... If I understand it correctly, it actually compresses a bit more than the zip format...

life is too short, not to explore
