LokBuild 3D printer build surface is designed to make 3D printing easy, reducing the pain of first layer adhesion problems.

One issue that you may encounter using your FDM 3D printer is first layer adhesion. Whilst problems with getting your 3D prints to stick to the print bed are in part down to having a level print bed and also a good nozzle to print head height a big cause of this problem is down to the print bed surface its self.

the advantages of using LokBuild are:

  • It improves model adhesion
  • Reduces warping
  • It is a durable and long lasting print surface
  • It protects your build plate
  • Easy removal of your prints
  • One build surface for multiple materials
  • It’s easy to install

LokBuild print surfaces are available in a range of sizes: 153mm x 153mm (6″); 203mm x 203mm (8″); 305mm x 305mm (12″)

How to use the LokBuild build surface

LokBuild is very easy to install and use. Once you try it for yourself you will wonder why you have spent so much time endlessly layering Glue stick or hairspray.

Installing your print surface

  1. Wipe down the build platform
  2. Trim the LokBuild surface (if necessary) to match the shape of your print surface. You can use either scissors or a craft knife.
  3. Remove the adhesive backing and apply to your build plate. To do this it is best to start from one end and work your way to the other side smoothing it down as you go.
  4. Don’t forget to adjsut the printers nozzle height and check the build surface is level. When setting the nozzle height please bear in mind that Lokbuild works better without squashing the filament into the surface so you can position your nozzle further away from the print surface than you are probably use to.

Cleaning your LokBuild Surface

One of the great things about Lokbuild is that you don’t need to clean it very often. If you do feel the need to clean however then use alcohol wipes, something with a low percentage of Isopropyll.

Firstly, if you want to return a product or you have a faulty product please get in touch as soon as possible!

To prevent ordering incorrect items, if you are unsure just ask and we can offer some guidance. However, bear in mind that we cannot say whether a particular product will be right for the purpose that you intend to use it for.

You can return your goods to iDig3Dprinting for any reason within 14 business days following receipt at your delivery address as long as they are in a re-saleable condition.

Filaments & resins cannot be returned once opened as once exposed to air these items perish.

Downloadable goods and 3D print samples cannot be returned and no refund will be issued.

Shipping costs of returned items are paid by the customer

A full refund will be issued for unopened items that are returned in their original packaging that are in a “as new” re-saleable condition minus additional costs that are incurred by iDig3Dprinting like payment processing fees, custom duties or charges.

We are afraid we cannot issue refunds for products that have been defaced, altered, used, or damaged in any way. All requests for refunds are subject to inspection by iDig3DPrinting of the returned item. We are not a charity or a lending library.

Refunds and returns for faulty items works a bit differently. Faulty goods can be accepted for return upto 60 days from receipt of the goods (However we prefer to offer diagnostics and repair solutions prior to an actual return, its better for the environment). After this time you will need to contact the Manufacturer. A repair or replacement will be issued for faulty goods once they have passed inspection and been found by iDig3Dprinting to be faulty.

This is a brief account of our returns policy. For the full terms please see our Terms and conditions page. Content on the Terms and Conditions page supersedes this content.
