I'm putting this here rather than a support request as it may help others in the future.

The combination of a lack of space as well as moving toward a production flow in which I could work around gravity, and with all axes being built on lead screws, can these machines be mounted vertically and operated that way? If it works, it could make my life so much easier.

Have any companies done this with Probotix machines? I guess the main concern would be the Y motors' size...?

Intrigued! It would really help me also. even at an 80 degree incline would be ok. Maybe a counter balance to not overload the motors?
