Default digitizing

Me again was wondering if someone could assist me. If I have a design already digitized I can stitch it fine. I have Bernina version 5 digitizing software. And I have 2 designs that I have digitized myself, they are probably not the best and somewhere close to the worse, when I stitch them out I see the material through the stitches. The designs are for on the back of sweatshirts. And I'm using dark sweatshirts with lighter thread.

Your density is not high enough. Contact your digitizer and tell them what you see and for them to correct it.

I digitized it myself. I guess another question that makes it a lot of stitches and wasn't sure it already takes over an hour to stitch...I guess I'm not sure if that is normal, since I am still very new at all of this.

I use Pulse digitizing software so I am not familiar with the program you are using. Usually its a density issue when you can see the material under the stitching. I use 74 spi and that works great (recommended by Jerilee Auclair - first lady of digitizing). Boost your spi up to 74 and see if that works.

How many stitches is the design?

Are you using the step underlay to help hold it to the backing, and help with the density issue?
Are you using a "fancy" design, where needle points hit the same place repeatedly? This can let the background material show through.
What thickness thread are you using? I have to make the density between .38 and .4 when using Marathon thread, where it is OK at .45 using Isacord.
Did you autodigitize, or manually digitize the design?
How big is your design? 37,400 will take awhile to sew out! What machine are you using?
Take some of the designs that work well and open them in the software, "ungroup" them, and check what densities, pull factors etc. are being used on different sections by checking in the "object properties" box.
Good luck.

I used the auto underlay feature. And a step design for my large tent and large letters.
I run isacord thread since that is what I got with my machine. I manually digitized my design. Which I'm sure is the problem since I am very new to that. I run a baby lock bmp 6

Is that a pattern in your stitch, looks like lines running in it, that could be part of your problem.

There is not supposed to be a pattern. I just used the step fill.

A couple of things you could try:
You could try increasing the density to about .42 or .4 (but that will give even more stitches.
You could decrease the stitch length slightly. (again more stitches)
I don't normally auto-underlay (I like to have control), so go to the "effects" part of "object properties" and see what they've given you. I usually use the step underlay for the first underlay (90° to the stitch direction), and edge-walk for the second option. (If you do it the other way around your step underlay is only at 45° to the stitch direction)
Try using a different step-fill pattern. You are probably using No. 1. Try 12,13,14,16,17,18,or 19. They are more random. (Have a look at appendix D in your manual - found under the "Help" icon.)
It looks like your whole tent is digitized as one object, and nothing wrong with that, but imagine the fun you could have with textures in different areas, and using the "wave effect" for curvy stitching. :-)
Let us know how it goes.
