As a 3D Printing enthusiast, there are so many different potential upgrades on the market that it’s often difficult to identify which are actually beneficial, and which might just be a waste of time and effort. However, there are a few upgrades that have been a highly sought-after by online 3D Making communities for a while now, one of which is the Bondtech- Dual-Drive extruder, which utilises double Drive Gears to offer perfect extrusion and retraction accuracy by gripping the 3D Filament from both sides while feeding it to the hotend.

The only problem with the Bondtech extruders though, is that they cost an excessive amount of money, and in some cases can even cost as much as half a 3D Printer depending on which printer you have and which extruder you want. Fortunately, Creality 3D has taken this Dual-Drive Design and created their own Creality Dual-Drive Extruder Body, which was included on the Creality CR-10S Pro to add even more value to the already-amazing Pro range flagship model.

 

Creality Dual-Drive Extruder Body  -  Included Components:

  • Extruder Body

– Two Parts (Main Body + Tension Lever)              

  • Extruder Drive Gear(s)

– 2 x Specialised Drive Gears

  • Idler Pulley

– Replaced by Secondary Drive Gear

  • Bowden Connector

– Included

  • Tensioning Parts

– Tension Screw and Spring

  • Fastening Elements

– Assorted Screws

  • Low-Wear Filament Guide

– Anodised for Low Friction

 

Typical Applications for the Creality Dual-Drive Extruder Body:

While the simple addition of a secondary drive gear greatly improves the quality of 3D printing, this type of extruder system offers its true benefits with tricky Flexible Filaments and other exotics that are typically difficult to control. And whereas flexibles can typically bounce and skip when only being driven from one side, the double-grip ensures that the printer can reliably extrude and retract the perfect lengths, resulting in far more control over the filament and overall better printing results.

As a final note, we are still in the process of testing the Creality Dual-Drive Extruder Body on other 3D Printers like the original CR-10 series, and we will be reporting back here as soon as we know the potential compatibility of this product. So consider checking back from time to time as we test and update this unit’s compatibilities, as the benefits of this extruder body could certainly add value to many of the other models that we stock.

Although Creality 3D have been working within the industry since 2014, their addition of the Creality CR-10 series is what really catapulted them to the front line of competition, as it offered substantially better quality compared to other 3D printers – while simultaneously reducing the cost and complexities of the machines.


The quality of Creality’s 3D Printers and accessories shows through in their market history, with the brand selling around 3000 printers in their first year on the market, followed by about 10,000 sales over the next year. Now, Creality easily sells around 30,000 or more 3D printers each year, with sales continuously rising as they bring out more models. These are impressive numbers when considering the fact that they entered the industry as unknown competitors, quickly rising through the ranks and now even competing with Wanhao and similar top brands.


If you are looking for excellent 3D Printers that offer affordability without compromising on quality, Creality 3D is certainly a brand that you should take note of. From the basic Creality Ender 2 all the way up to the large build volume Creality CR-10 S5, there are few other brands who are capable of offering such a refined package while still maintaining some of the most enticing prices in the industry.
