LokBuild 3D Print Build Surface **Special TCT Show Price** The LokBuild replaces the need for blue masking tape or polyimide films such as Kapton Tape, the LokBuild 3D Print Build Surface is made from heat-resistant materials to provide a stable build platform for 3D printed models whilst allowing completed models to be removed easily. The LokBuild 3D Print Build Surface is constantly being tested with new materials and it’s currently compatible with the following materials ABS, PLA, HIPS, PET colorFabb_XT, colorFabb nGen, colorFabb_HT, colorFabb XT-CF20 (carbon fibre) Woodfill, Bronzefill, Copperfill, Brassfill Polymaker PC-Plus (polycarbonate), Polymaker PC-Max (polycarbonate), Polymaker PolyFlex, Ninjaflex Features of the LokBuild 3D Print Build Surface: Optimal 3D printing surface Improves model adhesion Reduces warping Easier nozzle height calibration Durable and long lasting Protect your build plate Easy removal of completed prints One build surface for most materials Easily cut to size with scissors or craft knife Easy to install and remove Installing the LokBuild 1.) Wipe down the build platform ensuring it is clean. 2.) Trim LokBuild down to match the shape and size of your own build plate, this can be done very easily with household scissors or a craft knife. 3.) Remove the adhesive backing and apply the LokBuild to the build plate, you should start from one side and work your way to the other side, smoothing the LokBuild as you go. 4.) Adjust the 3D printers nozzle height and check that the build surface is level. Cleaning the LokBuild LokBuild doesn’t need to be cleaned very often, but if you do clean the LokBuild you should use alcohol wipes or similar (low % Isopropyl). Do not use acetone or anything with a high % Isopropyl, this will damage the surface of the LokBuild. Nozzle Height Calibration with the LokBuild LokBuild is more forgiving than other products on the market when setting the nozzle height and doesn’t require such a high level of accuracy. Be aware there will be an optimal nozzle height for your chosen material and printer. The key to a good nozzle height is to experiment, it’s recommended to start further away from the bed than with other surfaces and then reduce the nozzle height slightly until the print sticks to the LokBuild. Because of the wide range of 3D printers and materials it makes it impossible to give exact print parameters, but a good starting point for the nozzle height would be between 0.20mm – 0.25mm.
3D PRINTING 3D printers are fantastic things! Producing some great looking parts straight off the printer. However, if you actually own a desktop 3D printer you will know that this isn't always the case and all kinds of printing errors can creep in.
