Ballscrews are always the best. Even in your case.

x4 is complete rubbish. Unless you want to do some cake icing?

That will also depend on what you have. For example, workshop space, CNC knowledge etc.

I just turned my large double garage into a workshop, so the space is good. I also have 8 x 4. I can however extend it if need be. I have expertise in electrical engineering and am currently renovating my place plus the workshop. 3D printing is my hobby. So learning curve won’t be too steep for me

You are forgetting something important. What are you intending to do with the CNC?

Sorry. I want to do some woodwork. No some but lots of them. Tables with patterns, carved signs, and a lot more. I would want to do all this without any compromise on quality
