Bondtech DDX v3 - Direct Drive eXtruder for Creality Ender and CR Series

The Bondtech DDX Direct Drive eXtruder for Creality 3D printers is an upgrade kit that replaces the original bowden extruder with a direct drive extruder setup. It is a high-performance Dual Drive extruder based on the BMG Bondtech Mini Geared.

A DDX v3 Adapter set is required to use this product.

The DDX is compatible with most Creality 3D printers from the Ender and CR series. The DDX requires an adapter set for each model (not included).

Bondtech DDX Direct Drive eXtruder

This Direct Drive eXtruder from Bondtech is a high performance, high reliability 1,75mm Dual Drive extruder for Creality 3D printers, based on our very popular BMG. Bondtech’s unique Dual-Drive technology combined with either the factory hotend or for even better performance the industry leading hotends, Copperhead™, Mosquito™ or Mosquito Magnum from Slice Engineering gives you a direct drive extruder with problems free material feeding and enables the use of a wider range of materials. The housing parts are printed with PA12 (polyamide) for maximum strength and precision using industrial grade SLS technology.

The DDX v3 is much easier to install

With the integrated fan shroud and mount included in the DDX v3 adapter sets, the DDX v3 is even easier to install. Snap the fan to the shroud without using screws. Adjust the height of the shroud with one front access screw.


Easy To Setup

For ease of setup the kit is attached to the carriage with only 2 screws.

Using a bed probe or BLTouch with DDX

The DDX was designed to allow space for the bed probe to be attached to the x-carriage. In models where there is no space to attach a bed probe (like the BLtouch) to the X-carriage, a mount can printed (or purchased here) and attached to the right hand side of the DDX.

*1 Using DDX v3 on Ender-5 Plus

On the Ender-5 Plus, the DDX fan shroud will collide with the right hand rail if nothing is changed on the unit. To fix that problem we sell the SLS DDX Bed Rod Holder Set for Ender-5 Plus and supply as alternative the STL file of the new Z-rod holder that can solve this issue. Download the file from the list here.

*2 Using DDX v3 on CR-10 Max

On the Cr-10 Max the z-height will be limited to in between 430mm and 455mm, instead of the original 470.
This is due to the higher position of the push-fit on our extruder, that forces the bowden to bend at a lower level under the top bar. Use the Z(height) parameter at Machine Settings in the slicer to reflect this lower limit. Select the lower value and fine tune the max Z with testing.
