Pull Compensation

The success of an embroidery depends on many factors, one of the most important being the proper management of pull compensation, which is essential to compensate for the different behavior that the fabrics have when they are embroidered. With Millennium III it is a breeze to adapt the embroidery to the real situations: the user will access the configuration dialogs of the most important parameters, while the complex details are handled automatically within the program.

The pull compensation parameter (available in columns and in fills) makes it possible for the stitches to cover a larger area than that described by the description curves, thus compensating the pull that the fabric will undergo. We will look at an embroidery before and after the use of the pull compensation feature; to begin with, consider the following example where there is no pull compensation:

The pull compensation can be absolute (millimeters) or relative (percentage of the filled area):

With a pull compensation of 10% applied to the satin entity, the fill stitches go beyond the description lines on each side, with respect to the width of the filled area:
