The installation help videos don't match the website and I can't find the downloads

I'm trying to install this on my Mac. The help video doesn't match the current website at all, but I have been able to track down all the downloads except the final one where I have to download some file and unzip into the /Library/Application Support/Slic3r/ folder. 1) since the website doesn't match the video any more, I can't find the file to download 1) even if it did, the Slic3r folder doesn't exist - am I supposed to create it?

The reason why the instructions do not match is due to Leapfrog not supporting Repetier Host anymore for the past two years. The only reason those are still up are for the customers that have been using Repetier Host before it was dropped.


So I would suggest using Simplify 3D instead.
