In today’s video, I convert my CR-10 with a Bondtech BMG and E3D hotend to a direct drive setup. Direct drive allows for more flexible and exotic materials to be used but comes at the cost of a heavier extruder carriage.
If you are not using a TH3D EZABL and Bondtech with E3D – you will need to find a different carriage.
Prints shown in this video can definitely be improved upon with settings tweaks, just got this to the point where it was working fine.
