.pec File Extension

Developer: Brother International Corporation
File type: Brother Embroidery File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .pec. Files with the file extension .pec can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .pec files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .pec file?

The .pec file extension is mainly associated with Brother sewing machines and this extension is attached to files that are created using this machine. This machine is used for embroidery creation and the .pec files of this file type contain stitch patterns. These stitch patterns can then, be loaded to the sewing machine, allowing users to sew embroidery automatically. With the use of these embroidery files, sewing embroideries can be accomplished quickly, saving people a lot of time and effort and they can also be guaranteed of excellent results. Pfaff sewing machines can also use the .pec files as long as these files are converted into appropriate formats. Other embroidery machines that use the .pec file extension are Bernina and Babylock and some applications used to open these .pec files are the VSM Group Pfaff creative 4D Software, BALARAD Embird Suite, PES2Card Utility, 4DEmbroidery, SewWhat-Pro, 3DEmbroidery, and ArtLink. These applications all have something to do with embroideries.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .pec files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .pec. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
