DDX Adapter Set Compatible Printers
The DDX requires an adapter set for each model, or set of models. Please see the list below:
DDX Adapter Set For Creality Ender / CR-10:
- Creality Ender-3 / Ender-3 V2 / Ender-3 Pro
- Creality Ender-5 / Ender-5 Pro / Ender-5 Plus*
- Creality Ender-6
- Creality CR-10 V1
- Creality CR-10 (Mini)
- Creality CR-10S
- Creality CR-10 S4
- Creality CR-10 S5
DDX Adapter Set For Creality CR-10 Pro/Max:
- Creality CR-10S Pro
- Creality CR-10S Pro V2**
- Creality CR-10 Max**
* On the Ender-5 Plus, the DDX fan shroud will collide with the right-hand rail if nothing is changed on the unit. To fix that problem, please 3D print and install the DDX Bed Rod Holder Set for the Ender-5 Plus here.
** To use the DDX on the CR-10S Pro V2 and the CR-10 Max, you will need to remove the BL Touch bracket on the printer and 3D print a BL Touch mount to use with the DDX. On the CR-10 Max, the z-height will be limited between 430 mm and 455 mm, instead of the original 470 mm. This is due to the higher position of the push-fit on this extruder which forces the bowden to bend at a lower level under the top bar. Use the Z (height) parameter in the Machine Settings of your slicer to reflect this lower limit. After selecting this lower value, make sure to test and adjust it as is necessary.
When upgrading an Ender-3 or CR-10, be aware firmware changes are almost impossible. In these models, the e-steps value has to be declared on the start g-code in the slicer. The DDX Adapter Set For Creality Ender / CR-10 requires your printer to have a 40x40x10mm Radial Fan.
Note: The DDX is NOT compatible with the Mosquito Magnum+®

The DDX v3 is much easier to install
With an integrated fan shroud and mount, the DDX v3 is even easier to install. To install the fan, just snap the fan to the shroud without using screws. If you want to adjust the height of the shroud, you can do so now with one front access screw. It's that easy!
Using a bed probe with DDX
The DDX was designed to allow space for the bed probe to be attached to the x-carriage. In models where there is no space to attach a bed probe like the BLtouch, to the X-carriage, a mount can printed and attached to the right-hand side of the DDX.
