    There is no "best" in machine design.

    Ever decision is a compromise.

    4/5/6 have advantage in resisting torsion. Downsides include more difficult to machine and align. And you have to make sure the carriage mounted to bearings is appropriately rigid.

    Interesting point with torsion , but why 3 is not better tan 3 or 4 , why in industrial machines there is aproximatley all time used 3 ? How can be more resistant to torsion 456 than 3 or 2 or 1 ? Because there are same dinamic range , and same boxes .
