Ahhhh I see, a non-dual extrusion STL with a primary extruder doing the printing and the second extruder doing the support material.
I just tried a quick test, nothing in-depth, to see if something I thought up could work and it did. Set the first process to your_machine(both extruders) and set all the print settings and your primary extruder, do NOT generate supports. Add a second process your_Machine(both extruders), enable support generation with the support extruder, and then set top layers, bottom layers, shells/perimeters to zero as well as no skirt and 0% infill. slice with all processes && continuous. Didn't test out to see if tool head change scripts were implemented, but it did do the support gneration and print slicing properly (i believe). I don't have a dual extruder printer with me to actually test it. Again, a bit more work, but after it's set up it can be used for all future prints.
