I am also looking into switch to direct drive on my HEVO.
I like your design, could you send link where you bought parts?
I'm confused which parts do I need to order...

I'm happy you like it. I'm printing with this extruder now for 5 months and didn't have a single issue with it so far. It prints all the filaments I'm feeding it with from standards to flex, PC and Nylon in best quality (often better than my Prusa i3 MK3S).
All the parts I used I had laying around in my shop. The gears are from a BMG copy I once baught at Aliexpress. For best quality I would recommend using original Bondtech parts. As a stepper motor I'm using a standard 20mm NEMA17 with ~13 Ncm. A E3D v6 direct Hotend and a BL-Touch/3D-Touch sensor.
Some M3 screws and some M3 nuts and brass insert nuts. Thats all. Costs were around 35€ + E3D Hotend.
I hope you enjoy my design as much as I do.

Hello, i really like this design. Is it possible to get the design files for this? I would need to do some small modifications for mine build. I would be really happy for this

as this is a design with my own linked libraries and a lot of files I'm sorry to say this is not possible. Just tell me your modifications and I will try to make a version for you ;-)
