Ender 3 v2 Direct extruder advice

Hi! I love your channel, it has helped me allot since i purchased my printer in November. I am looking at converting my ender 3 v2 to direct extrusion and cant really find a lot out there on what kit to use or what ones will actually work with the ender 3 v2. Any suggestions/advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I converted my Ender 5 Pro to what I call semi-direct-drive. What I did was to make an aluminum plate to attach to the stock hotend plate. I then moved the extruder & its stepper motor to the new plate & connected it to the hotend with a very short length of Capricorn tubing. So far, it has worked well.

If I wanted to improve on this setup I would move to an all-in-one direct drive hotend. This is a hotend where the extruder & hotend are built as 1 unit. This helps reduce the distance from the extruder to the top of the hotend to almost nothing. There are a number of manufacturers of such units.

Chep says that the extra wight can cause problems. How do you feel? Is TPU easier to print?

So far, mine is working OK.

This would be the one for the Ender 3 V2, right? Micro Swiss Direct Drive Extruder for Creality with Hotend | MatterHackers

The list near the bottom of the page says it’s compatible.

Thanks for your advice. Looks like I can get the micro Swiss that is compatible with the Ender 3 and just print out a new cover for the hotend.
