Ender 5 Direct Drive
Creality Ender 5 Direct Drive upgrade kit: the DD E3 by Basaraba Innovations that is compatible with all Ender 5 3D printers.
This kit includes everything needed to upgrade your machine to a direct drive with no machine modification required. This kit requires approximately 15 minutes to install (30 minutes tops, if new to the machine).
Why switch to Direct Drive?
- More options for materials such as flexible filaments and metal filaments from The Virtual Foundry
- Super fast and easy loading/unloading
- Vastly reduced stringing due to shorter retraction distance
- Better routing of filament versus stock filament routing
- More accurate filament extrusion due to the reduced distance to push filament from extruder to hotend
Why choose this Ender 5 Direct Drive kit versus others?
- Great price
- Easily install in 15-30 minutes
- No loss of build volume (with stock hotend. A V6 hot end is much longer and will result in a loss of Z-axis movement range)
- No need to modify the firmware
- Uses stock hardware
- CNC machined 6061 aluminum direct drive carriage – Made in USA
- 3D printed spacer pieces
- 3D printed wire holding pieces
- 3mm hex head hardware to bolt on
- Upgraded metal push to connect connector and tube
- Wire harness extension for extruder
- 5 zip ties for holding wires to holders
- Cable wrap

We are not responsible for any installation errors while installing kit. This kit has been installed and tested on over 50 Ender 5 printers for over 3 months and work flawlessly. In some cases, the stock Ender 5 hotend wires are shorter than other machines. We have observed variation by up to 30mm from machine to machine. This could cause lack of Z-axis volume.
May work on more models of machines with X Axis extrusion similar to the Ender 5 machines.
