There are 2 file types use the .OFM file extension:
1. Melco Embroidery File
Embroidery file saved in the Melco's proprietary embroidery format; contains sewing machine instructions for stitching a graphic onto a piece of fabric, such as a cloth or t-shirt.
OFM files contain instructions such as needle placement, direction, and movement. They are similar to .DST files, but also support color information. Therefore, they may contain color change instructions as well.
NOTE: The OFM format is supported by Zazzle's custom embroidery service, as long as the design does not contain more than ten colors.
