Hello Ultimaker Team!

Since years the standard printer definition file provided by "TheTobby" for the Tevo Black Widow has an error in the metadata section: "has_Materials" is "false" by default.

So with every new Cura version I had to change the definition file "tevo_blackwidow.def.json" manually to "true", since it seems that it isn't maintained any more by the original company.

However with Cura 5.0.0 the definitions are no longer in a directory "C:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura xyz\resources\definitions". Instead it seems, that these definitions have gone into a database.

Where can I change the appropriate setting so that I can access all the material definitions?

It would be great if this setting could be changed by default in the future.


Best regards

    The resource folder has changed locations a bit. The folder you are looking for can now be found here:

    C:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 5.0.0\share\cura\resources\definitions
