@philippeholthuizen Robox tested material does not mean it is supported under the warranty. If the filament is not available on a SmartReel, the use of that material will void the warranty. Currently the only materials that are warranty acceptable to my knowledge are CEL PET, ABS, HIPS, PolySupport, PC-Plus, and ColorFabb XT and nGen. No other materials are acceptable if you want to keep your warranty. If you are told otherwise by your local reseller, please make sure you get this in writing and they will have to assist with any warranty issues.
Boiling/overheating the material will reduce its strength and may release dangerous fumes depending on the material.
I think temperature and print speed are the best solutions for this issue, but without testing the material I can't provide better input.
@click No, I do not think this will occur and as above, any material not available on a SmartReel will void the warranty on the head and extruder. The most you may see is bulk reels to allow respooling, but retail sales of filament through CEL will remain on SmartReels. Note that ColorFabb nGen and XT do not require SmartReels to be used and will retain warranty coverage. I believe the same is true for PolySupport and PC-Plus.
