Simtpal has uploaded a remix of this that uses stock length extruder screws and mounts the filament sensor above the extruder. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2869640
Another direct drive mount I'm working on, still haven't decided just what direction I want to go. I have a MK8 aluminum extruder on the way so I'll double check measurements. That fang in the picture is 2bedom's Microswiss fang. Not sure if it will clear, again, need to take measurements to see where the fang will sit. Not going to be much clearance if it does fit.
Pretty much all I did was take deejay's direct mount, tighten up the stepper mounting holes, add a front wall for stiffness, and extend the bottom so that it covers all three available screws for attachment.
The other version with a hole is intended to allow placing a 20x20mm heatsink onto the stepper.
Print at your own risk, nothing has been verified to fit yet. I'll get to it when I have a less busy day.
► Added version with "CR-10 DD" logo and a bit of extra clearance for the top left guide wheel. Think it looks cool. Still working on the camera because I need at least one more out at my house so it'll be a few days before I can tinker with printer mods again.
► Verified these will clear this fang: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2757367
► Added DirectDrive_HorizontalStepper. Has clearance for stepper wiring harness to exit the front and a zip tie lug.
