    I found this :

     

    "machine_extruder_count": { "default": 2 }"

    in this topic

    but I don't know how to use it.

    My goal is to use the second extruder for soluble support.

    2.2 will have greatly improved support for dual extrusion. You can probably get it to work with setting the machine extruder count to 2, but it will require a lot of tweaking / experimentation.

    Hi,

    I didn't see 2.2 relase, I directly find the 2.3 (beta) but I still not figure out how to add second extruder and select it for support :(

    There was no 2.2 release, it went straight to 2.3 Beta

    Look in the json file for "Ultimaker Original Dual Extrusion", that one got fully functioning dual extrusion implemented.

    If you use windows you will probably find it here:

    C:\Program Files\Cura 2.3\resources\definitions\ultimaker_original_dual.def.json

    I find the solution here :

    https://ultimaker.com/en/community/22409-setup-custom-dual-extrusion-machine-in-cura-23-beta

    it works well to add custon printer with dual extruder, but still not test to print with it
