Selecting a SimSpray™ Mode

SimSpray™ offers a variety of Modes (learning paths) to help users learn skills:

  • Tutorial mode provides interactive guidance on fundamental paint skills and how to use key SimSpray™ features to develop those skills.

  • Activity mode (SimSpray Powder only) provides users the ability to test specific skills in an interactive, controlled environment.

  • Lesson mode provides a structured environment to test user skills.  Users perform Project, Tutorial, or Activity Lessons and their performance is tracked.

  • Free Paint, Free Blast, and Free Coat modes offer Users the most options and the ability to practice their skills without being tracked.
