A copy of GpxUi can be found on the SD card in the printer.
 
==Lokbuild Print Surface==
*Can use heated bed for PLA, but with the bed off it will adhere to the surface no problem.
*Can use heated bed for ABS, use whatever temperature you normally would
*for other materials see official site http://www.lokbuild.com/ or search it on internetz
**according to them, it can be used with: 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
 
*Lokbuild is durable. Rana has printed 100's of times on it at home and it still is good as new.
 
-----
Usage:
*Use Lokbuild surface alone. Do not use tape, or "ABS Juice", or glue stick or anything
*Print as you normally would. Rana finds even large prints do not curl, but use a brim or raft if you like. No fan for first layer.
*To remove print, use the flat spatula to get underneath as usual. A room temperature print will just pop off easily. Lokbuild is durable, but if you really try you can scuff the surface.
*MUST ALLOW heated bed to cool to room temp before you remove print. Not doing so may remove the Lokbuild surface. If you're in a hurry put a fan on it.
*You may see markings on the surface from where your print was. This is not a problem, you can print right on top of the markings as usual, they do not affect adherence of plastic to surface (at least for PLA... rana hasn't tried other materials)
*Praise Lokbuild god that you don't have to use tape anymore. Lokbuild will cease to adhere if ritual offerings are withheld.
-----
Cleaning:
*use warm-hot water with dish detergent, scrub with the green side of the sponge. Rinse with water. This should remove any markings left over from prints. The surface should look good as new.
*May also clean with <10% isopropyl alcohol.
*DO NOT put acetone on surface or high % isopropyl, this is will damage the surface.
-----
Print not sticking? Raise the bed up a little to squish that first layer more. Or use a heated bed for the first layer. Like 50-60 C for PLA?

If your material is not compatible with lokbuild, put tape on top of it, then put hairspray or glue stick or whatever.
