Thanks for choosing the Hero Me Gen2! Upgrading to a Direct Drive is a big upgrade (I have not done it yet myself). There is a version of the Hero Me Gen2 Base that is compatible with a Direct Drive kit. It is called the DD Hero Me Base Gen2.stl. It work's with the Barasaba Innovations DD kit on eBay. More info can be found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3359578 (note that my version of the DD Hero Me base is current with all my other mods, his is based on an older version of the Hero Me base). There are several others that are listed in the Hero Me Collection here: https://www.thingiverse.com/mediaman/collections/hero-me-cooling-systems. I would suggest that the only reason to go to a direct drive system is if you need to print flexible filaments. Anti-stringing can be solved in your slicer settings, there is no reason to go DD to solve stringiness.
