Default Digitalized Patterns - What are they?

Can you please explain to me what is meant by digitalized patterns?

Depending on the site you're talking about they might be patterns for robotic systems. They're also called digitized patterns.

I may be wrong but I'm thinking a pattern devised on one of the EQ systems? Like I said I may be wrong and will stand corrected.

Digitized (note spelling) means that a computer can read it. Could be for a long arm quilting machine equipped with a computer or an embroidery design for a computerized embroidery machine.

Normally I think of that as a pattern that can be downloaded as a PDF when purchased so
I can print it as opposed to mailed to me on paper.

Snooze 2978 is correct. It can apply to embroidery designs and longarm quilting patterns. (plus who knows what else quilting related or otherwise). For example--- You have a business logo you want to embroider on a shirt. You would need to digitize the logo- convert it into an embroidery pattern. Once that happens the embroidery machine would know how many stitches and where to put them to recreate the logo.

That is interesting. I had seen digitized in the description of a fabric made by Hoffman.

I think you're thinking of digital printing. It's used in this fabric - https://www.bearcreekquiltingcompany...lines-digital/

Digitalized is another form of the word digitized, but less used. Snooze and PaperPrincess have the right explanation.

Perhaps the digitalized fabric has had the design printed by a computer as opposed to older methods of printing.
And yes, other digitizing is creating designs using computer programs, especially for various brands of quilting and embroidery machines. and any pdf you will get will just be images of those designs, not the actual design.

Most fabric companies will be going to digital fabric printing in the near future. The fashion industry is using it now. The designers don't have to choose fabric available to use , they now can describe what they want and it is printed and ready to use in a matter of hours.
