Dual extrusion option for joints of support structures

Thu Sep 17, 2015 12:23 pm

We have water soluble PVA that we use for supports but removing large supports can get pretty messy.
An option to create just the joints of the support out of PVA and the middle out of the print material would make removing supports a lot easier.
This way the supports will remain ridged in the water while the PVA connecting them to the model will dissolve and free the supports.

Allowing us to choose the extruder for dense support layers would be great. Bonus points if we could specify extruder for bottom support layers.

This has been suggested in at least one other thread and would be a great (and unique I believe) addition to S3D!
