How to use dual-extruder 3D printer with dissolvable filament

Dual-extruder 3D printer is very popular in the world, and believe everyone knows Dual-extruder 3D printer can print 2 colors. Now we are introducing dissolvable  filament. 

Today, we are printing movable car, Bule PLA filament on right extruder, Dissovlabe filament on the left extruder. About printing setting, absolutely we will printer main part by PLA, support filament by dissolvable filament. After printing, just like below pictures,
