CREALITY - Direct drive with all parts - $24USD - $33CAD free ship

Deal Link:
Price:
$33
Creality has their Ender 3/3 pro direct drive extruder package on sale for $24USD right now. It looks like this comes with everything, fans, nozzle, new extruded, stepper motor, wires, hot end, ETC.

$24 USD is probably a good deal just for the parts ! Anyway this is direct swap by the looks of it. Amazing if you want a direct drive 3D printer to print TPU.

I know you can print your own mount, but I understand that you may need to extend the extruder motor wires. Anyway just for the parts this is a good deal !

Damn. Just spent about $50CAD on the SeeMeCNC EZR extruder. Would rather have had this (though the SeeMeCNC is working well for TPU on my Ender 3 Pro).

Code TKY:)HYN582 brings it down to $19.74USD all in. Seems like a great deal. Hopefully an easy upgrade for my Ender 3 V1s.

In the my first 3 months I’ve stuck with PLA/PLA+ and a handful of PETG prints. I am not sure if TPU is something I’ll get around to or not so would this still be a worthwhile upgrade or only beneficial with TPU?

Better to get a BMG or Titan from AliExpress. This is using the big 40mm NEMA17 steppers which is a lot of weight to put on the gantry.

If thats all you're printing stick with the bowden extruder.

Out of curiosity what are some good things to be printing in TPU? I honestly just haven’t researched it at all yet and maybe it’s something I do in fact want to try out. What are some things that are good for doing with TPU?

I see from that link a full DDE BMG is around $90 (but u get a much better extruder obviously).

However for this kit ($19.74USD), could you just buy the NEMA17-23mm stepper seperatly (from trianglelab link u provided above for $16.48CAD), and since the face between the NEMA17-40mm and NEMA17-23mm are the same, you could put the NEMA17-23mm on this kit for a much lighter weight? Total cost ~$43CAD.

Cheap and maybe lighier weight than the BMG setup? Should work fine, and since this kit is very minimal, I don't see how you would get a lighter weight (except maybe swapping the metal bracket for a lighter weight plastic/carbon fibre).

Almost correct, except you will want an extruder with a 3:1 gearing if you're using a pancake stepper. Bigger steppers have more torque which is why the stock is 40mm and ungeared. Here's the Titan (better than the Creality extruder) + 23mm stepper for $33 CAD total: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32949474384.html

(It says Bowden in the title for some reason, but you would install it direct drive. There are photos of DD at the bottom)

Ah thanks for the info! That makes it much clearer. :P Will the titan extruder be fine to print soft materials like TPU? I know the original had issues with the TPU getting caught in the gears.
