History of embroidery machine & file format

The first embroidery machine has been developed in 1829. But the technology did not function as desired, so that this was first forgotten. This machine has been developed in 1850 and became a growing branch of industry in St. Gallen (CH).

However, our current embroidery machines are not comparable with the embroidery machines of the time thanks to the invention of electricity and the continuous development of existing technology. Using a USB stick and even a direct connection to the computer, the desired embroidery motif can be transferred digitally via the stick file. But which file format is needed for my embroidery machine?
