VRSim has completed development of SimSpray, its newest virtual reality training system designed to augment traditional training of painters.

SimSpray uses virtual reality to immerse trainees in a three-dimensional, simulated environment where they can practice the proper techniques for spray painting and coating.

As trainees “spray,” color-coded indicators tell whether the coating is being applied too thick (red), too thin (blue), or just right (green).

“SimSpray is the only product in the paintings and coatings industry that uses an active stereoscopic view of the painting environment to teach basic skills,” said Matthew Wallace, VRSim president and CEO.

New Feedback, Visuals

The manufacturer has added a number of new features to the system since its pre-release, and owners of the earlier system will receive an upgrade, Wallace said.

Visuals have been enhanced, and a new analysis and feedback system includes additional scoring, graphing and review data.

The system includes visual guides for stand-off distance, spray-gun speed and spray-gun angle.

Users can see if their coverage is inadequate or has runs, dry spray, orange peel or other defects. The system also has new visual cues for stand-off distance, angle and speed, to reinforce proper technique.

Meanwhile, instructors can now set up multicoat projects with different coating types and can set mil thickness, speed and other key parameters. The system also includes extensive review features.

Enhanced Realism

SimSpray uses a custom spray gun with haptic feedback to provide a “kickback” feeling. Trainees can adjust the cone orientation, fan pattern, and fluid control directly on the spray gun.

Operators use the spray gun and wear a painter’s helmet to walk around and interact with the 3D work piece in the simulation. An 8-by-8-foot set-up space is recommended.

The manufacturer calls SimSpray an eco-friendly, cost-effective, turnkey, portable training system that saves on materials and eliminates hazardous waste and toxins.

VRSim Inc., based in East Hartford, CT, creates virtual reality training systems designed to enhance basic skills training for education and research groups, industrial trades, and military and defense organizations.
