Study the CNC machines that are here and documented.

Check out commercial power drive nibbelers (I guess your not going to make one.

Put the 2 together.

If you intend to use this in the future I would make it a big as you can - generally your going to find bigger is preferable to too small.

thanks i m also thinking as to put nibbler & cnc table together but problem is nibbler direction ..... it cut only in forwards direction not in backward. i m thinking about to cut a contour shape, so what you suggest? what will b the possible movement of the nibbler for cutting circular shape? is it possible we give rotating movement to nibbler and automate it . and it rotate with possible circular profile? what will be the design?

I am not sure what advantage a nibbler would have over a mill. The nibbler has to have a rotational axis to point the tool into the cut. It also has the disadvantages of requiring an initial hole and having a wide kerf.

I think it might be easier to make make a simple mill.
