My FrankenEnder is Complete.

I had a list of upgrades I wanted to do to an Ender 3 v1, when I got my confidence up to try some of the things that take a working familiarity of the printer to do. This hotend and a new cooling duct are the last items on the list. I've had a direct drive extruder for a while, but the MicroSwiss all metal hotend is a thing of beauty, and I wanted one to finish things up.

Great setup

Been printing with PLA+ and PETG for a year. Working great so far. Modified my fan case and ducting for the cr10 pro v2. Also upgraded the firmware. Setup firmware upgrade
Still working out to print tpu as it comes loose on the dd extruder.

Over my expectation, the printing result is perfect, very impressed.

I modified my CR10S-Pro V2 to direct drive by using original stock parts and bracket from Thingiverse. It works and better than original Bowden method. After a few months, I bought MicroSwiss Direct Drive Extruder Kit when it was on sale. I didn’t install it immediately because I don’t know if it’s worth replacing MicroSwiss from my customized DD, because it worked well already.
Well, I decided to try MS and install it. The installation is not difficult but need to print its fan shroud first. Even though the document mentions offset x=-5 and y =-10, but my case it’s different. I use Klipper and set offset by using this command,

[delayed_gcode welcome]
initial_duration: 5.

And, I added extra the flow and line width for initial layer to get better result.
Overall, I was so impressed that the printing quality is so good, no string at all, even use the retraction settings 0.2mm, 5mm/s. I also print it at speed 100mm/s and acceleration 2,000mm/s2, the result is still perfect.
I strongly recommend you should have it!

Great Product NOT PLUG &PLAY

The Extruder is a great product and works like it should. The fan duct they point to is okay for the CR10s pro V2 I really didn't care for it and found one in the comments that is slightly better. The hardest part of the whole thing was finding a copy of firmware that was usable with the correct offset. I ended up on Github through Tinny Machines. The direction are not really all that clear on how to complete that portion. I really wish I would have had a better understanding or better instructions on updating the firmware.

Over all I'm still happy that I put it on. It has solved the problems I was having with the bowden tube and jamming.
