Abstract—This paper presents a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) embroidery font digitizing system that is specialized for East-Asian language character sets. The application can process any True Type font of the Windows Operating System. The system provides many operations, including editing the font’s characters by setting break lines and defining the stroke curve order for each character. Following, Bézier curves are used in order to describe the shape of the character which the user can further edit. The final outcome of the software is an accurate contour of the selected characters that can be exported in various formats in order to be fed to an Embroidery Designing System. The area of study of the thesis lies in the Computer-Aided Design field and specifically in the Computer-Aided Design for Embroidery.
