What is an ART60 file?
An ART60 file is an embroidery design created by BERNINA ARTlink (version 6 or later), an embroidery viewing and exporting application. It contains design information, such as object stitch outlines, thread colors, a preview thumbnail image, and other metadata.
The ART60 format is the native file type used by version 6 of ARTlink to save designs that can be re-opened and modified by the software. The format is only used by version 6 and later of ARTlink.
Older versions of ARTlink save designs as ART files, by default. But beginning with version 5 of ARTlink, the software saves designs with file extensions that reflect the version of the software. For example, ARTlink 5 saves designs as .ART50 files, and ARTlink 7 saves designs as .ART70 files.
