made operation even easier and implemented new functions. Stoll has been a synonym for flat knitting machines of the highest quality for almost 135 years. For example. MY D E S I G N THE BEST IS GETTING EVEN BETTER. but you can also work with it totally freely and flexibly. we have made it possible to complete a pattern even faster. Another highlight is our exclusive cooperation with ENEAS Informatica in flat knitting. Naturally. The result is an even more flexible pattern software with even more influencing options for the programmer: M1plus®. That also means that patterns from the preceding version are absolutely compatible with the new version. In addition. And fast creation of different sizes for production is no problem with the M1plus®. the most important news: With M1plus® you can continue work- ing as usual. The options for linking ENEAS Informatica software to the M1plus® using picture import and export as well as a special inter- face for shapes offers you a high degree of freedom regarding design. we have reengi- neered the menu guidance system. But now with the new Design Mode and new Arrangement Technology. We have also taken many suggestions from our customers and the market demand into account in the continuing development of our established pattern software. this is how the world’s first mass-produced computer-controlled flat knitting machines (1975) and the CMS Generation (1987) were developed. This is especially due to the fact that we have always reacted to the needs of our customers. . M1 IS NOW M1PLUS®. fabric simulation and presentation. the program still supports you with numerous built-in automatic functions. First.

.

With this method. you can still also program with the M1plus® by beginning in the Technical Mode and working with all available views there simultaneously. Starting programming in the Design Mode has a special advantage: You only work with the compact symbol view. There are two ways to begin working out a pattern program: In the new Design Mode or in the familiar Technical Mode. Of course. you can first concentrate solely on your design and finish it more quickly.WE GO A STEP FURTHER SO YOU CAN MAKE PROGRESS FASTER. at this stage you don’t have to worry about whether the modules contained in the pattern fit together. A big hit: All editing steps carried out can be saved and reloaded anytime. module expansion and the separation of the intarsia rows take place in a concluding step. No complex calculation processes take place in the background during this. . Therefore. even with the most complicated patterns. the fabric and technical views are available to you. forwards and backwards. Also. After that.

AS MUCH SUPPORT AS NECESSARY. M1PLUS® IS YOUR PERFECT PARTNER. AS MUCH FREEDOM AS POSSIBLE. when automatic calculation is not desirable. you can use the colors to determine which yarn carriers should be assigned to the pattern areas. The best examples for this are the two editors “Module Arrangement” and “Color Arrangement”. Therefore. you can determine the ideal path to the finished knitting programs completely based on your own vision. Determine yarn carriers yourself With the help of yarn carrier colors. Drawing with yarn carrier colors A special color palette with 32 assigned yarn carriers is available to you – 8 rails with 4 yarn carriers each. With these. it also always enables you to individually influence it. . the colors for these yarn carriers are auto- matically applied in the pattern. you can determine the use of the yarn carriers in the pattern. as well as the new “Drawing with Yarn Carrier Colors”. Practical: When you relocate the yarn carriers to another rail in the yarn field dialog box. However. M1plus® supports you – the way you want it to – with numerous automatic functions which relieve you of the programming of standard procedu- res.

and therefore predefine their knitting order. stowing the yarn carriers can be controlled. These are then entered into the pattern during expansion. and shows them in the Arrangement Editor be relocated relative to each other in an along with a ready-to-use proposal. You can assign the Module Arrangement to the entire pattern or only to certain rows. and can therefore be reused at any time. Compiling modules Arrangement Editor with special Expanding to your specifications By selecting a pattern area. the rows of each module can you entered in the Arrangement Editor. and can therefore be reused at any time. This way the knitting and transfer rows of each module can be brought together in the desired processing order. for example. Even new needle actions can be entered here in any order. Color Arrangements are managed within the program like regular modules. Module Arrangements are administered within the program like regular modules. especially simple way.

With this. the color rows can be relocated you entered in the Arrangement Editor. shows them in the Arrangement Editor.Module Arrangement: Manual matching of modules You can include two or more modules in a Module Arrangement. relative to each other in an especially simple way. the modules are then expanded in the order you specified. Color Arrangement: Manual determination of knitting sequences You can predefine when a row must be separated into several subsequent knitting rows – for example as necessary for intarsia. . This way. During the later step of “expanding”.

When generating the pattern. Special bonus: With an additional program you can even present your drafts on a virtual catwalk. Coarse or fine? With “Change Yarn” you can show your pattern draft on the screen in various gauges or with different yarn types. Mask Dip/Change Yarn Following a color reduction in “Mask Dip” you can realistically vary the coloring of your knitting pattern. This cooperation is exclusive and unique for the flat knitting sector.
