  1. Yes i printed it in PLA and it works fine.
  2. When printing more complex objects (even without retraction) i am experiencing a lot of filament jams. those jams happen right before the heatbrake so i guess my filament cooling needs to be improved. such kind of problems i never had when using the direct drive. yes, the printing process looks a lot faster but for some reason it still has the same overall duration on those models i reprinted so far.
    I think the major advantage of the E3D hotend vs the original hotend is the difference in printing-quality which suprised me a lot. before i used it i thought that my quality was already really nice but the E3D took it to another level. As additional bonus the printing-process has become a bit quieter.
