Title:

Interface Layer Settings, Top Side of Part

Text:

-Canvas offers an interface layer with a specific filament selected, intending for minimizing use of generally more expensive soluble support. This is a great feature, but the interface layers only print on top of the supports, under the model. Currently the gap rule is applied and supports are generated in air, or directly on the part.
+KISSlicer offers an interface layer with a specific filament selected, intending for minimizing use of generally more expensive soluble support. This is a great feature, but the interface layers only print on top of the supports, under the model. Currently the gap rule is applied and supports are generated in air, or directly on the part.
Is there a way to build supports above a model with interface material between the model and supports?
Maybe a feature request more than a question.
Edit:
Soluble supports ***under*** part! Great feature, love it!
[image|4744]
Regular supports printed ***on top*** of model, no interface layer. Yuck!
[image|4743]
There are certainly other smart support implementations like tree supports that could fix this issue too, if we had the ability to send commands to the pallet and slice with other tools.

-It looks like Canvas will put dense interface layers on top of the part, but it is easily overridden and seems to ignore the interface layer thickness setting entirely.
