Manage All Your Field Layouts in One Place
We have launched 3 new features that completely transform the user experience: Custom Logo, Multi-Select, and Low Paint Alert. Keep reading below to learn more about them!
Custom Logo Feature
The new Custom Logo Feature allows you to paint your custom logos, designs, and images using the field painter. This is possible thanks to the new and powerful file reader within the TinyLineMarker app. Paint the logo of your school or team. Paint event logos and designs when gearing up for tournaments and competitions. Then add text surrounding your designs to bring everything to life!
The way to do this is very easy: You simply copy your logo file to your tablet, place it on the background map, and press Start.
You can copy your logo file in one of two ways:
- Connect your tablet to your PC and copy-paste the logo file.
- Store the file on a USB drive, connect it to the tablet and import the file.
1. Press New Field and select the file from the file locator.
2. Move and resize the design just like any other field.
3. Name your design and hit Save.
The design can now be painted at any time. You can also copy it to another location, change the size and
Create Custom Shapes
We also offer decorative templates that can be used by everyone who wishes to do a little extra with their sports turf. A good example would be to paint a Christmas tree around the holidays. This can add not only a sense of fun and celebration but also add branding value to your school, team or venue.

Imagine you need to paint three fields in a row but you don’t want to start each field manually when the previous one has been painted. Solution? Multi-Select.
With Multi-Select, you can queue up your fields one by one or simply select all visible fields with one button.
Re-arrange the order if necessary and press Start. The robot will now paint field 1, then field 2 until all fields are painted.
You can always see the path the robot will drive between your fields. Just zoom in and the path will be displayed with dotted lines between the fields. This is planned automatically and helps you keep the path clear for the robot.
Low Paint Alert
Now you don’t have to worry about the field painter running out of paint while it’s painting your fields. The robot will send a notification to your tablet and let you know when it is time to refill the paint container or check the paint flow.
The system detects whenever the paint container runs out of paint. This will trigger the alert and send you a notification on your tablet. The robot will keep working until stopped because paint can still flow through the paint system for a little while. Once stopped and refilled, simply press “Resume” and the robot will continue from where it stopped painting.
You create your fields by selecting a template on the tablet. You will find templates for football, rugby, lacrosse, tennis, track & field, etc. We are continuously adding new templates to the tablet.
Copy and Align
Using the tablet, you can create, copy, move, align and edit your fields. When you copy fields, the tablet will give you easy-to-use suggestions on new positions. You can move the fields by using drag-drop directly on the map, and you can set a specific distance between fields to make sure everyone has the necessary space for line guards, visitors etc.
You can place your fields directly using the background map. This allows you to make changes right from the sports ground and instantly check if the changes/ positions are accurate. You can also test drive fields before marking them to make sure everything is correctly placed.

Create Fields from Fixed Points
It’s possible to create fields from pre-defined points such as fixed goal posts, goal sockets, or a corner/side of an existing field. Use the robot to collect the points, place the field, save on tablet and start painting.
Customize Field Layout
All templates can be customized from the tablet. You can make the soccer field a little shorter if you need to, you can change the size of the coaching zones for a smaller/larger game, or you can leave out the hash marks of a football field if they are not necessary for training.
