Innovation for your creative process

2 Brands – 1 Purpose

STOLL and KM.ON – two successful brands of the KARL MAYER Group – combine their expertise and creativity to maximise benefits for the customer. Enter a new world of design creation. CREATE DESIGN, the new design software for flat-knitted goods, represents another major step towards the digitisation of the whole knitwear design and development process.

Shape creation and grading

The integrated shape and grading tool assists you in the creation and customisation of knitwear shapes. // Shape library with templates for various types of products and knitting pre-sets // Customisation of measurements to fit your product requirements // Easy grading for additional sizes // Option to import DXF shapes from other software or export yours for external use

Digital stitch development

Digital design means endless possibilities. CREATE DESIGN supports you through the whole design and stitch development process. // Browse for stitch inspiration in the integrated stitch library // Create own digital stitches with simultaneous stitch simulation // Use the integrated stitch distortion function to preview the realistic outcome of structures and artworks // Generate, preview and save different colourways with your seasonal yarns and colours

Export for 3D

Shapes and images from CREATE DESIGN can be exported for use in simulation in any 3D software. Once the DXF shapes are sewn together, you can add your CREATE DESIGN stitch simulations and texture maps to complete the garment and make a high-quality render.

Link to Production

CREATE DESIGN is also linked to production and accelerates the design-to-market process. Design programs can be sent to producers and used as a base for the machine program. Once the program is checked and processed by a knitting technician, the production can be started.

Much more than just a design software

The digitalised knitwear development with CREATE DESIGN offers benefits for a number of involved parties.
