Melco embroidery software saves embroidery designs with an OFM extension. These files contain sewing instructions such as needle position, direction, and thread color.

OFM files can be processed by compatible software, such as Melco DesignShop. The software then sends the instructions to a connected sewing machine, which stitches the graphic onto the material.
