@raykholo This is in danger of becoming a different topic. I agree in the case of an i3-clone (slamming around the fricking bed and print in Y), the direct drive head is relatively insubstantial in weight.
However … in the Bowden setup the properties of the filament as a spring become essential to printing. This is a very bad idea.
(Yes, we can futz around and make it work, kinda/mostly. Until we change filament - in kind or even new batch.)
To move the motor-mass off the print-head, better to use a remote-drive (with fixed properties) like the Zesty Nimble. At least in concept, this is a much better notion. But … I have not tested such. No notion if there are problems in practice.
