I have a set of resource files for the TAM Series 1 on my Mac: it contains two files resources/definitions/tam.def.json and resources/meshes/tam_series1.stl

I opened Cura 2.5 with Show package Contents, and pasted in the files where I found other such files for other machines, but the TAM S1 does not appear when I start Cura and try to add it as an Other Machine.

How do I add this printer to Cura 2.5? What have I missed?

    There is probably something wrong with the definition. The logs should mention if there is a reason why it failed.

    Where might I find the logs?

    I opened an issue and got this incorporated into Cura, presumably in a 2.6.1 Beta, or some such.

    Thanks for letting me know. I am fieldOfView on github by the way.

    I don't know if the changes were in time for inclusion in Cura 2.6, they may have to wait until Cura 2.7

    I don't see the option in current 2.6.
