Hi!

Since the last version doesn't have the Prusa profile, and as you are just starting with 3D printer, I recommend you to download a previous version (The last I have used is version 15.02.1).

The other way is to create a profile for your printer on the new Cura, looking at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.06.01\resources\settings" (or equivalent on another OS)

Hi Stef,

Regarding to your message, you just need to move the profile file to the directory I said before.

You should also probably take a look on RepRap wiki and forums to learn more about 3D printing, or even here at Ultimaker forum you will be able to find a lot of useful information to start printing.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
