Bondtech DDX v3 For Creality Ender/CR-10(S)
The Bondtech DDX Direct Drive eXtruder for Creality 3D printers is an upgrade kit that replaces the original bowden with a direct drive setup. It is a high-performance Dual Drive extruder based on the BMG Bondtech Mini Geared.
Multiple Hotends Compatibility
This model was created to be compatible with the original hotend of each compatible Creality model, except with the hotend in CR-10 V2/V3. Users may upgrade the hotend to Copperhead™ or Mosquito™. It is also compatible with users of Micro Swiss hotends. To upgrade the hotend, a specific adapter set is required.
The DDX v3 is much easier to install
With this integrated fan shroud and mount 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.
Using a bed probe 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 and attached to the right hand side of the DDX.
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™ or Mosquito™ from Slice Engineering, gives you a direct drive extruder with trouble 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.
Make your 3D printer even better
Bondtech DDX Direct Drive eXtruder for Creality is designed to give the user more options – different materials; higher flow and/or wider nozzles; thinner layers – and achieve a higher print quality. The DDX is based on the BMG Bondtech Mini Geared extruder featuring our unique Dual-Drive technology. The DDX housing design provides an effective Hot-End cooling. With the 3:1 gearing ratio, high resolution prints with small nozzles or high flow prints with bigger nozzles can be achieved.

The 4 PHases of DDX
DDX v3 on Ender-6
To use the DDX v3 on the Ender-6 please mind the following:
- The BL Touch mounts we sell are not compatible with the the Ender-6. We redesigned the mount and the STL model is available to download here.
- When using the DDX v3 and a Copperhead hotend on the Ender-6, it is necessary to adjust the height of the Z-stop screw. We designed a Z-stop Screw Adjuster and the STL model is available to download here.

- CR-10S Pro v2;
- CR-10 Max*2;
*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.
