the nozzles on the working head are shorter.
I placed the long nozzles for effect in the pictures
you can get a good print as long you make sure that all heads are at the same height  then you can print without the worry of the other heads hitting  your project the only thing you have to do is define each heads so skeinforge or any other slicing program will know  the correct coordinates each head
or How do you do an Accurate Print with the Prong Nozzels

interested in what the partially water soluble mix does
its water soluble filament you print rafts and support with it
amd you print with pla or abs over the top of it and when your done you soak it in water to disolve the the rafts and support material witch drasticaly reduses your cleanup time.
The one problem with this design is that all four nozzles would have to be at the same temperature.  It does make controlling it easier though.
it does make it easier especialy when the complicated part is comming up.
