The Jog to Code plugin may be what you are wanting, its available from the Downloads tab then Plugins.

As i understand it, you need to record and playback the movement of a spraygun for repetitive painting - so you need very accurate recording of multiple axes at once with highly variable feedrates. would jog-to-code support this?

How big and how complicated is your job? a shoe box will be easier than a motorbike frame.

Wood box for loadspeacers.I think this is must be made from stepper motors. And 4 or 5 axis machine.

You may want to have a look at CopyCat. You move the axis using a web camera ( dosen't have to be a camera ). It tracks your moves and generates the gcode. Additionaly there are edge and center finding  routines built into it. You can find a wirte up on how to use it in the Members Docs.
