Established in 2014 by Martin Bondéus, Swedish company Bondtech works to improve one of the key components of 3D printers: extruders. The company develops, designs and manufactures unique dual drive extruders that eliminate the risk of grinding, slipping, under extrusion, and filament deformation. You can have an awesome, high-quality 3D printer, but if the components that make up the system aren’t good, your prints won’t be either. Now, the company has released its latest component – a new Direct Drive System (DDS) for the desktop Creality3D CR-10S 3D printer.

The CR-10S DDR from Bondtech is the the company’s first full 3D printhead set, and comes with a Direct Drive extruder that’s based on Bondtech’s popular BMG version, in addition to an E3D V6 genuine hotend, as Bondtech does not yet manufacture these.

Bondtech really made a name for itself in reliable desktop 3D printing back in 2015, when it came out with its V2 Extruder. Since that time, thousands of 3D printer owners and makers have chosen to upgrade their machines and ensure better, faster prints by using Bondtech’s quality extruders. The company’s innovative Dual Drive Gear technology is continuing to gain a larger presence around the world, as more popular manufacturers keep deciding to adopt the tech as an OEM product.

The company’s new DDS for the CR-10S, which features a build volume of 300 x 300 x 400 mm and has been used to complete such print jobs as a life-size Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones, has a new approach when it comes to setup and ease of use. The system comes fully assembled, along with power cables, connection, and a sensor holder. The plug-and-play 3D printhead upgrade set also includes an integrated Bondtech BMG, in addition to the updated, customized firmware and necessary profiles.

Key advantages offered by this new DDS include extrusion control and reliability, and it also makes it possible for CR-10S users to expand on the range of materials they’re able to process. Its design resulted from a cooperation with Bondtech’s community, and 3D printing enthusiast and maker Greg3D created the original casing for the printhead. The system combines the BMG extruder’s push force with the good extrusion control of the V6 hotend.

Tom Jackson of Filament Frenzy said about Bondtech’s new CR-10S DDS, “Reliability is key.”

“It opens the machine up from being a big PLA printer to be a most material within reason big printer.”

Bondtech’s new DDS for the Creality CR-10S 3D printer also marks an important turning point in the available support content the company’s community enjoys. Its new Online Customer Service is launching, and will provide plenty of step-by-step guides and video Instructables.
