Graphic Designs

Select the drop-down menu, toolbar and toolbox icon, and then the pattern can be easily
designed. Main graphic elements include the point, line, rectangle, Ellipse, diamond, polygon, etc.
Main functions include color change, array copy, linear copy, multiple copy, mirror image copy, etc.
Such operations as copy of circled areas, color filling, rotation, expansion, deletion, cutting and
pasting can be conducted easily

File Types

(1) KNI File
This is the pattern file of Raynen-Qili KnitCAD, and is generated automatically after being
saved. It can be open directly by double click. Apply to the sweater knitting flat machine.

(2) 001 File
This is the machine file of the enhanced machine. The “.001” file achieved by Raynen-Qili KnitCAD compiltion.

(3) KNS File

This is the pattern file of the “Raynen Qili shoe design system”, and is generated automatically after being saved. Apply to the knitting vamp design. Note: The “Raynen Qili shoe design system” need to be encryption lock to open.

(4) RNS File

This is the shoe machine file. The “.RNS” file achieved by “Raynen Qili shoe design
system”compiltion. And the machine control system need to support the “*.RNS” file.

(5) CNT, PAT, PRM, SET and YAR Files

These files are the knitting files of the ordinary machine.
CNT: Consisting of knitting parameters of the machine. Therefore, it must be imported
before knitting.
PAT: Consisting of needle action information, the needle will act according to it.
Therefore, it must be imported before machine running.
PRM: Consisting of pattern cycle information, it must be imported before machine
SET: Pattern expansion file.
YAR: Consisting of the information of the yarn carrier, such as corresponding No. and
knitting range of the yarn carrier.

Knitting specification input and Shape

The user can use the Shape function in the software, and the required pattern can be generated
automatically by entering parameters of the specification.


The system can automatically generate the 001 (or RNS) file required by the control
system of the machine according to the information of the KNI (or KNS) file. In case of the KNI
(or KNS) information is incomplete or ambiguous, error prompts will be generated, and the
corresponding pattern row numbers and causes will be indicated. Meanwhile, the compiler can
automatically detect collision of the needles of front and rear beds.
The compiler has the powerful automatic processing functions, such as automatic yarn
kicking, pleating, floating yarn treatment, etc.

After compilation, the results of compilation can be viewed via the PAT Editor and De-compiler.
