STOLL Pattern Software M1plus®
Step by step into the future
STOLL Software Solutions offers you unique tools which not only considerably simplify your daily work, but also make a perceptible difference in your balance sheets.
We are continuously developing our established pattern software M1plus® to offer you more flexibility with even more options for the user:
With the pattern software M1plus® you are free to create all patterns that you desire going from cut and sew, Fully Fashion to Stoll-knit and wear®, in Intarsia, Stoll-multi gauges®, plating, Stoll-devoré knit®, Plush etc... techniques.
Take advantage of our exclusive cooperation with ENEAS modular graphics system in flat knitting. The option to link ENEAS software packages to the M1plus® offers a high degree of freedom regarding design, fabric simulation and presentation.
Individual Programming with M1plus®
Drawing with Yarn Carrier Colors
Select colors within a color palette with 32 assigned yarn carriers and set them to the desired pattern areas – just in case an automatic calculation is not desirable.
Include several modules in one Module Arrangement and predefine their knitting order. The result is the desired transfer row order of each module combination.
Predefine a row that is to be separated into several subsequent knitting and transfer rows – e.g. for Intarsia technique and yarn carrier motions. The desired additional rows in the Color Arrangement are inserted while expanding the pattern.
ENEAS Software Packages
Generate and graduate shapes simply and quickly with the "Shaper".
Dress a model and have a look at your knit from any view with the "3D-Viewer". An additional package allows the presentation of your designs on a virtual catwalk.
Transform your draft into pattern rows with the "Designer".
Prepare your fabric for presentation in a wide range of color variation with the "Page Studio".
Mask Dip / Change Yarn
Vary the coloring of your knitting pattern with "Mask Dip" and display it in various gauges and different yarn types with the "Change Yarn".
M1plus® operating modes
The Design Mode offers a compact programming style with the Symbol View. There are no complex calculation processes in the background in the first processing steps.
Take benefit from numerous implemented automatic functions with the Arrangement Technology and obtain all three available views (Symbol View, Technical View, Fabric View) simultaneously with the processing step "Expansion".
The Symbol View is the most compact representation of your pattern. Knitting data is visualized by clear symbols and colors. In the Design Mode drawing is as easy as in a regular paint program, since no expansion processes are running in the background.
The Technical Mode of the M1plus® provides full information and all three available views simultaneously from the very first step.
The Symbol View is the most compact representation of your pattern. Knitting data is visualized by clear symbols and colors.
The Fabric View immediately provides a realistic presentation of the fabric. This along with the previous control of the knitting order offers the advantage of being able to avoid part of the test fabrics.
The Technical View includes all important information for the knitting technique and presents the knitting order with the common symbols.

Connect flexibility to economy
Take real advantage of the computer controlled CMS machines using their networking ability and the various possibilities of communication with the machine. Centralized control will reduce downtimes considerably.
STOLL knitting machines offer options such as USB interface and networking via Ethernet.
In addition, we offer you the possibility of a data transfer technique with Stoll KnitLAN and a central storage option with Network Based Data Storage.
The Ethernet connection offers the possibility to connect CMS machines from TC to the latest machine generation to standard networks and quickly transmit large volumes of data.
Each CMS is equipped with USB interfaces as standard for optimum communication. All peripheral devices that are available in retail stores like USB Memory Stick, USB hard drive, USB Floppy drive, USB CD/DVD drive or USB keyboard are suitable for data exchange.
KnitLAN is the basic technology for network applications at Stoll. Thanks to high speed and transmission reliability, it provides new options of data transfer. KnitLAN is the basis for your applications between the knitting machines and external systems, similar to "http" for the internet.
The following applications are already based on the innovative KnitLAN technology:
- With "Online" you communicate with the individual machines by means of a simple user interface or send, for example, pattern files to any desired machine.
- MC Shell - this open interface provides possibilities for customized remote control access, e.g. automated control of production.
- Order Management Software is used for the distribution, control and management of knitting orders. See more information under "Machine Management Tools"
Network Based Data Storage enables the central storage of all relevant data on the network.
Centralized Pattern Library
Provide your production with patterns maintaining a central library of patterns with access for all networked machines.
Software Update Management
Do you need to update your machine software?
Provide latest software updates on a central server and prepare all networked machines with automatic updates without interrupting the knitting process.
STOLL Name Server (SNS)
With Stoll Name Server get a centralized database to administrate all networked OKC computer-type machines and Pattern Workstations. The web-based access to the STOLL Name Server shows all entries and you can edit helpful client data properties.
Networked OKC machines auto-register at the STOLL Name Server. Furthermore, you can add any pattern workstation or file server to the network.
