Have these instructions been updated for MatterControl 1.6? The directory mentioned no longer exists, and the directory ...\StaticData\Profiles\SeeMeCNC does not appear to follow this structure in the zip file.

These instructions are for MatterControl version 1.5.3 and previous. For 1.6:

1. Follow these instructions until you get to the 'Edit printer settings' step: http://wiki.mattercontrol.com/Custom_Pri...

2. Instead of editing settings, load the .ini file included in the download from this guide.

3. Continue with the other guide starting at the 'Export Printer Profile' step: http://wiki.mattercontrol.com/Custom_Pri...

4. Once you complete that guide, insert the .printer file into the .../MatterControl/StaticData/Profiles/$Manufacturer$/ and restart MatterControl.

You should now see the new printer profile in the drop down menu.
