    If you design a x-carriage and manage to get a 4th extruder Stepper driver working with some free Pins of the Rumba I see no problem here.... all you have to do is just do it :D

    This would be the main problem IMHO. Some people said there is a solution but I never found it. ATM the RUMBA is limited to three extruder steppers...

    My thoughts on the 3 extruder issue is unless you really need all 4 working at once, one option is to set up differnt nozzel size or material so you could just switch the cables (it you wired them with connectors would be super quick just remember to change nozzel offsets) instead of having to go through the hassle of physically switching the nozzels and releveling.
