Is there any way i can change which extruder is used for the support at a Z height?

I am printing a dual model. Pretty much 1 color on bottom then another color on top.

I would like to print the bottom with extruder 1 for model and support. Then around the time the second extruder starts printing, to switch to using extruder 2 as support.

 

This way i would be able to turn off extruder 1 after a while and have a single color print which would be faster.

I was able to mode the gcode to make it happen.

Use sed as a gcode read to find the line of the last change. Then turned all the t1 to t0.

The hotend is a single nozzle setup so X/Y offset is 0
