    This would be my first build here or anywhere. :)

    I need at least 12" movement in x and y. (Don't need z movement.) And then either a fixed "spray head" mounted above it, or a movable head and a fixed stage area.

    There are a few approaches I could use:

    1) C-Beam XLarge X/Y Table Bundle

    C-Beam XLarge X/Y Table Bundle
    C-Beam XLarge X/Y Table

    with the black box controller:

    BlackBox Motion Control System

    So for this one, the table would move, and I'd mount the spray head up above it, using a linear rail support structure.

    2) OpenBuilds Sphinx 55 (20" x 20")

    OpenBuilds Sphinx 55 (20" x 20")

    Stage doesn't move, but spray head would.

    3) OpenBuilds ACRO 55 20" x 20"

    https://openbuildspartstore.com/openbuilds-acro-55-20-x-20/

    Same: stage wouldn't move, but spray above would.

    Any thought?

    [Thanks!]

    Belts will give better speed for painting but the ACRO is probably not stout enough to do the job. You might be better off just building an H-frame with 3 of the NEMA 23 belt driven actuators.

    Not big. It's sort of an 8x8" frame, with 4 parts each in 2 columns. (The parts themselves are ~2x3.5".) The frame and parts themselves aren't taller than 1/2", so I don't have to worry about z much.
