Ask questionsConfusing dialog when trying to enable soluble interfaces with support_material_contact_distance > 0.
GNU/Linux Debian 9
Original Prusa i3 MK3s Multi Material 2S
PrusaSlicer gives a bit subversive message when trying to enable soluble supports:
The Wipe Tower currently supports the non-soluble supports only if they are printed with the current extruder without triggering a tool change (both support_material_extruder and support_material_interface_extruder need to be set to 0). Shall I adjust those settings in order to enable the Wipe Tower?
With a bit of spelunking around in the code, it seems that wipe tower is supported, but to use it, one has to set "support_material_contact_distance" to 0 :
This is not about a project, but print settings present, so no project included
I propose the text to be changed to include the information about the support_material_contact_distance.

There is something that prevents usage of the wipe tower unless you choose 0 distance that I do not understand?
To clarify, the use case.
I would like to use breakway support material as a support interface (like polysupport or inego 3d450), but I would like to have 0.05 z seperation (not 0), and I would also like to have a purge tower as well as regular PLA as the support structure.
This doesn't appear possible with this constraint, you would have to choose to have 0 seperation if you want to use purge tower / block. What is the reason for this constraint, why are they mutually exclusive?
