Not sure I like the design to be honest.

This extra add weight is not one solid block, the wobble created is likely to create some unwanted misprints or lines. Can't see this being as accurate on the X and Y axis in comparison to the top end direct drives like this one.

Yeah, but that's the difference between a basic, cost-effective upgrade and a very expensive premium part that's designed for the CR series as much as it is for the Ender series.

That one there is about three times the cost of this one at a minimum. Micro Swiss do great work, but this one is cost-effective like the Ender 3 itself.

Yeah completely understand that. What I was trying to emphasise here is that for the Ender3, performance wise I think bowden would remain better. Looking at their DD solution, it just doesnt look as sturdy as I would like.
