It works great, can't recommend anything else.

I had been upgrading my Ender 3 Pro for a couple months and settled on this extruder. I am coming back over 6 moths later to leave this really is that good. I have almost no issues with it. I don't do any tweaking, it just works. My only complaint is it's tough to do a cold pull to clean the nozzle but that could be user error so I will take fault for that. But I also haven't had a need to change or clean the nozzle with this extruder. I recommend Micro Swiss to everyone that asks me about upgrades and 3D printing. I am just blown away how easy it was to install and works with no issues at all. My other printer that doesn't have a Micro Swiss reminds me why I got a Micro Swiss :D anyway, it's a damn good extruder. Keep up the good work!

Very impressive

Going from stock Ender 3 hotend/extruder to this. Very impressive results so far. Nice kit and easy install.

NG Direct Drive

No issues and working flawlessly.

The parts that come in the box are great...

The BL Touch bracket model that Micro Swiss provides for you to print yourself is not very good. It is very flexible and does not provide a way to attach nuts to the machine screws that hold the probe to the bracket. Honestly for the premium price and the popularity of BL Touch on Ender 3 printers a metal probe bracket should probably be in the box.

Great product, works with Ender 3 v2 Neo, with some tweaks

Microswiss don't recommend this product for the V2 Neo, but I'm running it on one right now, at up to 290 degrees, prints everything I throw at it.

The only problem with the V2 Neo is the X axis limit switch. Print a replacement limit switch cover off Thingiverse, there's one that's meant for the V2 Neo, which actually has a completely different switch to other Ender 3 models. It moves the limit switch to where it typically is on a standard Ender 3. Then just program your offsets using gcode commands to tell the printer where to put the nozzle and you're good to go. I recommend flashing your firmware with the Pro Firmware off Github. It unlocks so many features and of course takes away that pesky temperature limit. And you can download the appropriate binery for you printer and with the features you want, stick it on your SD card and plug it straight in to your printer if learning how to compile Marlin isn't your thing. It's so easy, and really allows you to take advantage of this excellent hotend/extruder assembly.
