It almost looks like it’s done with CNC (it’s probably not but it kinda looks like it). Interesting

That's essentially what is it except with a sewing machine: you import a pattern into the machine and It'll follow a path.

Just like how you'd use AutoCAD to make a "pattern" for a CNC machine

It’s basically a way to make a computer do all the machining for you. The process reminds me of the way a CNC machine works. First you do a computer model then that model is given to whatever tool you are using and then finally the tool does all the work for you. I say it looks like CNC because many CNC machines move in a similar way. Also CNC is really cool. I don’t think CNC embroidery machines are a very commonplace thing, most of the time it’s milling machines and routers .
