Why is Formfutura filament listed as "not compatible" under filament settings?

Looking to try this filament (rPet) on my mini+ and wondered what the deal is?

Looking at the manufacturer's specs it should print OK with Generic PETG settings but they do warn not to use it for high precision prints. I would expect it to be OK with the standard nozzle and 0.15mm or greater layer height.

Cheerio,

Gotcha...

Thanks for the input! By chance am I missing an online resource that gives users feedback on the types of "compatible" versus "non-compatible" filaments in PrusaSlicer that would aid in determining why Prusa feels one way or the other about said compatibility/non-compatibility with their printers? I know we can look up the filament manufacturer specs and compare, but was just curious and always looking to learn more. Is it simply if they have not tested a specific filament - it gets the "non-compatible" label?

Thanks!

With new products arriving all the time it must be hard to keep up...

But a "What settings to use with filament X?" query here will usually get a response.

Cheerio,
