XY Table without timing belts.

Hello, I’m interested in creating a large XY Table. I’ve no experience in something like this but I do have experience with servos and Arduino.

To be honest it took me awhile to even come to the potential conclusion to my problem that is an XY Table.

It looks like most guides use a timing belt. Are there alternatives to using a belt?

If I used a belt would I have to worry about weight capacity? Wouldn’t I also have to worry about the belt degrading over time?

Again, I’m curious about alternatives to using a belt.

Essentially, I’m using the XY Table to traverse a grid.

Any help would be most appreciated.
