Solaris 2

The Baby Lock Solaris 2 is the top-of-the-line combination sewing and embroidery machine with built-in IQ Visionary projector which displays stitches and embroidery designs directly onto the fabric. Resize, move or make other adjustments with the touch of a wireless stylus- all while seeing it happen in real time before you sew it out. Perfect placement is achieved every time. 

Solaris 2 includes:

  • IQ Visionary Projector
  • 10-5/8" x 16" Embroidery Field
  • IQ Intuition™ - Monitoring
  • IQ™ Designer
  • End point setting for sewing 

 

With the Baby Lock Solaris 2 IQ Visionary technology, you can experience precise sewing and embroidery placement every time. 

Perfect Embroidery Placement

While in embroidery mode, choose from three different projection backgrounds (black, grey, or white) based on the fabric choices to see your design clearly. The needle drop laser is displayed in a point or a “T” pattern for even more precise placement.

Perfect Sewing Placement

The Solaris 2 uses a variety of guideline markers and grids for perfect placement. While in sewing mode, switch between three different laser colors (red, green, and white) for better visibility based on fabric choices. Single, double, angles, and grid lines are ideal for piecing precision, stitch adjustment, and aligning starting points and very wide stitches.

10-5/8-in x 16-in & 10-5/8-in x 10-5/8-in Hoop Sizes

The 10-5/8-in x 16-in hoop is Baby Lock’s largest hoop yet. It makes it possible to stitch out your biggest embroidery designs with fewer rehoopings. The 10-5/8-in x 10-5/8-in hoop size is perfect for quilt blocks.

IQ Intuition Monitoring App

Keep track of your project’s progress with this convenient feature that alerts your phone anytime stitching is stopped and when stitching is done (free smartphone app for download is required).

 

IQ Designer and IQ Intuition Positioning App

Create your own designs and quilt motifs with ease. Draw directly on the screen, scan in your favorite artwork, upload an existing file to the Solaris 2 using a USB drive, or wirelessly send designs to your machine from your smartphone using the IQ Intuition Positioning App. Your art will be instantly converted into an embroidery pattern (free smartphone app for download is required).

Auto Split of Large Quilt Borders

Create beautiful quilt borders and sashing with unmatched precision using the 30 patterns and two shapes (rectangular or hexagonal) available. Simply enter a few measurements, select a hoop, and the Solaris 2 does the necessary calculations for you. The on-screen instructions guide you every step of the way for quilts measuring up to 118” x 118”. You can even repeat or skip sections, if necessary.

10.1-inch Capacitive Touchscreen

You’ll have total control over every single aspect of your stitches, embroidery designs, placement, colors and more on a large touchscreen with slide scrolling menus and pinch in/out zooming.

Add Quilting to Embroidery Patterns

Camera Detecting Buttonhole Foot
