The machine settings for a custom FDM printer don't seem to have a field for indicating a dual extruder printer or what the offset is. Where are these settings?

    There is no way to edit the number of extruders in the GUI. I am working on that for Cura 2.6

    If you want to add a custom dual extruder printer, you have to write a machine definition (and multiple extruder definitions). See the Ultimaker Original Dual Extruder definition for an example.

    Ok, thanks. It would also be good if there was a way to import machine settings from the old versions of Cura (the 15.x versions).
