If I have a support material and print it together with PLA, later on the support material is not needed any longer. Is it possible to change the support material to TPU and print TPU together with PLA? If yes, what would be the workflow for that?

I don't recommend you to use TPU as support material, it's very flexible and you can lose the print if the support bents.

 

For the supports exists a lot of solutions, for example, the PVA that is soluble in water. To use a different material for the supports, go to the support option and change the support extruder to the extruder that has the other material.

I don't want to use TPU as support material. Say we use PVA as support material together with PLA. On the same print PVA is not needed anymore after a certain moment. So on the extruder that uses PVA we want to change the material to TPU and print PLA together with TPU.

Is it now clear what is the question?
