I've personally decided to never use a Bowden Tube printer again. Too many issues.

Fair enough. Haven't had many issues, but the idea of a direct drive extruder is compelling.

I'm surprised that they still have a 3d printed extruder and not aluminum, and also surprised they don't just include brand name Capricorn tube.

3D printed extruder? It's plastic, but that ain't 3D printed. The metal inserts also will prevent the wear that the plastic ones once got.

Yeah, Capricorn tubing would be nice, but the whole point of the Ender 3 is that it is affordable. Need to cut costs somewhere.

same here.

also my direct drive 3d printers are more delicate when it comes to print quality.


because of the added weight i have to print slower with my direct driver printers to achive the same quality.
