Absolutely worth it

I wasn't sure if I should upgrade to a direct-drive extruder for my new Ender 5 Pro, but on the advice of a friend I shelled out for the new Micro Swiss NG extruder with all-metal hot-end. I tried a pretty intricate print with interlocking helical gears (in PLA) before and after the upgrade, and there is a marked print quality difference. I even noticed an improvement in general mechanical strength of the printed parts, so I believe I'm getting better layer adhesion with this extruder and hot-end. I am also pleased with how clean of prints I get with PETG. I feel like I'm getting quality comparable to a higher tier of printers (which would cost hundreds more USD) with this upgrade, which makes the price tag easy to justify.

I am pretty handy, and I thought installation was pretty straightforward (and fun!), did not require me to have any special tools or a degree in mechanical engineering. It is a process that involves taking apart the print head and old extruder assembly and reassembling with the new parts, and I probably spend about an hour on it. The downloadable instructions are good, with pictures and helpful tips about the trickier parts of the installation.

Absolutely amazing

I’ve been using this for about a week now and this DD is absolutely amazing my prints are so beautiful it’s crazy. Check my videos on TikTok @kaosberserker

Nice Upgrade

This is a nice direct drive upgrade for the Creality and is pretty easy to install. I've only had one problem, the filament somehow stopped extruding through the hotend and extruded into the gears. I had to disassemble most of it to clear that out. So, a nice upgrade but a little more complicated to clear jams.

Best Hot end / direct drive yet.

This is a nice compact hot end kit. It took me a while to get the tuning; e-steps, and z axis calibrated, but once that was completed it's been working very well. I think it looks very nice too. It's a very clean and obviously well thought out device.
