I see in videos and on the site that you have a grey or white color frame on the screen that outlines the printer
how can I get that to show?

Thank you.,

Guess I need to make an STL first of the printer. :/

That's right.....

Create the stl, and then you'll have a few iterations on adjusting the zero point to get the model in the right place in relation to the models, etc

What is the default location of the folder for the existing stl files for included printer models?

Hello,
I am planning to buy a 3D printer with a nice interactive screen. From my research, I came across ELEGOO Mars UV and I think it is a perfect fit. Anyone with a different opinion on this printer? I will appreciate your reviews. Attached link to the source article.
Regards

You want to use the Mars UV with S3D? That will not work.
