 Very simple form for communications,​ which makes no assumptions of specific machine capability, and encodes special functions as "​STOP"​ commands for later interpretation when reading the file in. the function encoding is why the supplementary design sheet is usually provided with the .dst file to communicate colours to be used, output file size and other design information like thread used and start point information. Very simple form for communications,​ which makes no assumptions of specific machine capability, and encodes special functions as "​STOP"​ commands for later interpretation when reading the file in. the function encoding is why the supplementary design sheet is usually provided with the .dst file to communicate colours to be used, output file size and other design information like thread used and start point information.
-Some documentation of the file format is located[[https://​community.kde.org/​Projects/​Liberty/​File_Formats/​Tajima_Ternary|here]] I have not yet verified this to .dst codes in hand.+Some documentation of the file format is located [[https://​community.kde.org/​Projects/​Liberty/​File_Formats/​Tajima_Ternary|here]] I have not yet verified this to .dst codes in hand.

 Depending on the implementation with smoothie, the import function is likely to be required in order to take a generic embroidery design and make it ready for the specific machine implementation. the .dst file for example is similar to a .gcode file, however is not complete run information,​ as the colour change and special functions are not yet available as digital information. Depending on the implementation with smoothie, the import function is likely to be required in order to take a generic embroidery design and make it ready for the specific machine implementation. the .dst file for example is similar to a .gcode file, however is not complete run information,​ as the colour change and special functions are not yet available as digital information.
