Didn't work with cr-10S

I want to installés it on my cr-10S but nothing fits on it. I will need to make a lot of modification to fit the autoleveler on the exteuder to keep all it work. The fan shroud won't fit on the support.

So it was totally fasle that it work on Cr-10s and it's a plug and play.

The Pressure autoleveling system that came with the Cr-10s does't fit and can't be screw.

Simple to install great addition

Great product, well made, simple to install.

Assembly was simple with the instruction pdf and believe me, I need simple. Printer is printing better than new. Very nice, complete kit.

FANTASTIC support!

I had gotten this direct drive kit over a year ago during one of their sales. It sat for over a year before I decided to resurrect my Ender3 from the dead. I did some upgrades New main board and a few other things, then I started to install this DD kit, and something wasn't right with it. the motor was hitting the upper cross brace and it didn't sit right. I dissembled it looking very closely at EVERYTHING. The hole for the bottom wheel was not machined correctly. Where I work we have CNC machines running all of the time, I get it, sometimes things get past QC. Seeing as how it had been over a year, I wasn't holding my breath about getting a replacement backing plate. I contacted support, gave then the information they needed, and also sent pictures, next thing I know I had an email stating a new backing plate was on it's way. Thank you Micro Swiss for being a quality company and standing behind your products! I'm looking forward to upgrading to the NG!

No more Bowden tube problems

Appart from needing to recalibrate the extruder, this is a solution to most extruder difficulties. Bowden tubes are just a bad idea and this extruder is a very simple improvement. The only other thing after calibration is reducing retraction settings. I use 0.5mm to 1.2mm retraction depending on the material. That's a fraction of what other systems may use.
Great product!
