  1. Nobody knows how to use these config files? Just double checking before I go straight to Ultimaker for support.
  2. Thanks for the attempt Tinkergnome. I will try to explain better in case someone else can chime in... Cura 3.2.1 has a folder inside it called "resources" Inside that they have a folder called "quality" The Mark 2 updates have nothing to do with this folder. They only use : Definitions Extruders images scripts variants So that leads me to believe the folder "Quality" is there for everyone. Inside this folder are many different folders, along with a small handful of .cfg files not in a folder. Each folder contains many different .cfg files. One of the folders is called "Ultimaker 2_mark2" I did not put this folder there, and do not know where it would have come from if not everyone has it? Even if everyone else only has the OTHER folders, my question remains the same.... How do you implement these .cfg files? I hope this clears things up. Sorry for any confusion. Thanks, - Jason
  3. Here are a couple of images to show where they are on my Windows Explorer...
  4. Thanks! I was wondering if it was only for Mark2 because I believe that folder is there before the Mark2 upgrade stuff? (I didn't put it there.) It also has other Ultimaker .cfg files/folders as well.
  5. I finally got my computer and running with a new hard drive and am excited to get back to printing. Newest version of Cura is installed and running. (3.2.1) I am also running the Mark 2 upgrade. I see in the "Resources" folder there is another folder called "quality". Inside that folder there are many Mark2 files that end in .cfg How does one go about using these files? I would like to start using PVA and saw that it looked like these were printing profiles that would possibly have good starting parameters for me to use, but I have no way of knowing how to utilize them? I checked all the "import" options inside Cura and non ask for a .cfg file and so when I try to import them anywhere it says wrong file type. Thanks, - Jason
  6. Found it. copied it into the Cura folder directly. Still same result. Should it go into a specific folder inside Cura as well? I just put it into the main folder.

  8. QTJava is the only one in there that has a QT in the beginning.
  9. Thanks tinkergnome. I know you guys are all trying to help. And it is greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, I don't know what this means or how to do it. I am currently trying to work on ahoeben's advice for creating a virtual machine to run Linux inside of. I will report back when I get results but it won't be until tomorrow, or more likely the next day.
  10. I have considered re-installing Windows, but with everything I have on here that I need for work, (This is my sole source of bread winning) it scares me to think what would happen if I miss anything or anything gets messed up. So I can't wipe Windows off or my other programs wont run. And I don't think running a "virtual" machine is quite up my alley in terms of what I probably need to know to get it done right. I don't have any spare hard disks to mess with. I have also been considering installing a solid state hard drive as an upgrade, but have heard that whatever issues I have on the current hard drive will "follow through" to the new one when I do a "clone" to the new drive.
  11. This might sound silly but....... What's Linux? I thought that was only for macs? Or am I thinking of something else?
  12. Thanks again Ahoeben. I've tried replacing and updating everything I can think of, and must just have something still not updated or like you said, messed up. I thought it was an odd coincidence it relates directly to when Ultimaker stopped supporting 32 bits, even though my system is a 64 bit system. Are there any other free slicing software that supports the Mark 2 upgrade? Or am I just stuck until I can purchase a new computer in a year or two? Or do I just sell my printer? Drastic measure for sure, but what good does it do me just sitting there?
