Design for a machine that moves along and X, Y, and Z axis


Hello, I am looking into needing help designing a crane system that slides along a set area (basically standing in a big square formation above the ground) and I need to set up my ardino uno on the simulator to have 3 different motors that will move in an X, Y, and Z axis but I need push buttons to move it left, right, forward, backwards, up and down. Was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how I could go about this?
