    The robotic arm was the initial solution but extending at a horizonal length of 24 feet out with a weight of 42 lbs at the terminal end of the arm and being suspended in the air about 8 feet off the ground was just not mechanically favorable.

    If you cannot provide details of what you are in need of accomplishing, I will not provide ideas.

    You can use combination of parts from CNCRP such as linear carriage, UCCNC and I beam. So not using linear bearing or linear block. You can make it really cheap cnc, it could be under $2000.

    That leaves a jib crane or gantry system. You might be able to buy materials $5000. If you include cost of engineering and labor to build you will be over $20,000.
