Hello,

I don't find how to create a printer .json file with double extruders and how to use it.

does someone know it ?

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.

Thanks for your reply, I'm going to wait for 2.2 ;)

Actually on json file, it's only this parameter I have to add/change ?

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
