TriloByte Extruder

First revision of the Trilobyte extruder, all metal hotend design, final configuration subject to alterations. Designed to fit the dimensions of the Mechabot X Carriage. Being able to use different filaments would require the ability to set 3 separate temperatures, which might prove a little tricky as these nozzles are only 9mm apart, the copper heater blocks might transfer heat where its not wanted, if no suitable shield can be found, they will need relocating. The Aluminium heatsink also needs a little extra thought for ideal setup, if the size can be reduced further or split into 2 materials to provide the right heat breaks/ melt zones, airflow increased, etc.. Nozzles also need finalizing, off the shelf ones or custom steel tips?
