CURA 4.8 software

I'm brand new to 3D printing, and I have a question about the new CURA 4.8. I'm currently using 4.0 because the newer version doesn't seem to support my printer, Tenlog hands 2. Or am I missing something in the setup menu?

    Ultimaker has the good grace to include 3rd party printer definitions in Cura.  Those definitions are created by 3rd parties and submitted to Ultimaker for inclusion in the program.  If there is a Tenlog definition file in your 4.0 setup you could copy it to "Cura 4.8\resources\definitions" and restart Cura.  It should show up, but I'm not sure if all the variable names and such are the same.  It might be missing some settings.

    The alternative is to add a Custom FFF printer and make all the adjustments to Cura settings so it matches your own printer (2 extruders, firmware flavor, build plate size, etc).  The firmware flavor is the most important so the printer understands the generated Gcode.  BTW that's a nice looking machine.
