Maintenance and Other Proces #

You can add the extra supplied weight to your spray gun controller mount to simulate more paint in the spray gun. It should be noted that the spray gun controller mount can be utilised with no weights, however, the ‘tank’ requires at least one weight to attach to the spray gun controller mount’s main body.

  • The spare weight is stored in the top right cut out underneath the HDMI cable.
  • To install the weights, simply slide the cap off the lid of the spray gun controller mount ‘tank’.
  • Carefully insert the weight into the tank, male threaded end first.
  • Lightly screw the new weight into the existing weight until its silicone washer makes contact.
  • Replace the lid.

Changing the Controller’s Battery #

When the controller is getting low on power, you will receive an onscreen notification. The SprayVIS controller mount uses the right-hand controller. The left-hand controller doesn’t need to be powered for the system to function.

A low battery warning indicates that you have about 2hr battery remaining.

  • To remove the battery simply undo the Velcro on the spray gun controller mount.
  • Slide back the panel on the controller.
    • The panel is magnetically attached to the controller body for easy removal.
  • Replace the battery (1xAA) and reattach the panel.
  • Firmly tighten the Velcro strap and ensure the controller isn’t loose in the mount.

Remove the Controller from the Spray Gun Controller Mount #

In relation to the SprayVIS system, there is no need to remove the controller form the spray gun controller mount. However, if you do need to the paint tank will firstly need to be removed.

  • To remove the tank, first push on its lid to ensure the tank is completely pressed onto the weights.
  • Rotate the tank anti-clockwise, ensuring the bottle does not rub against the controller’s ring.
    • Tilting the controller mount forward while rotating can help avoid this.
    • Note: If the tank is spinning but the weight is not unscrewing from the spray gun controller mount, try applying some sideways force while rotating the tank.
      • If this doesn’t work, the tank can also be slid up slightly, granting access to the base of the weight. Using a flathead screwdriver apply slight tangential pressure to the silicone washer with the aim to loosen its grip.
      • If still no luck the tank can be removed from the weight by pulling it off the weight, this will require considerable force and should be a last resort.
  • Once the tank is removed, undo the Velcro strap.
  • The controller can now be removed by lifting from its end.

Resetting the VR Scene Position and Orientation #

If you find yourself facing the wrong direction in the virtual scene in relation to your physical workspace, or are too far off center in your workspace, you can press the ‘A’ button on the top of the controller to reset your position in the scene.

Starting a SprayVIS Information Video #

A SprayVIS information video can be played on the external screen in situations like at expos and events between users, etc. To play the video navigate to the SprayVIS Home Screen and

press the ‘B’ button on the top of the controller. The video will now be playing on the external screen.
