Ortur Laser Master 2 - Could I mount it on its end?


Just a quick question could I mount an Ortur Laser Master 2 on its end and would it function as normal.

I only ask as the space that I have for it is limited but it would fit on its side.


I saw a guy on youtube did a test. He found that the laser shut off if the device moved from being horizontal to being vertical during burning. However, he was able to mount the device vertically using clamps and start a new job in this position. Sorry I can’t find the video link but it should be easy to try.

My question is… these stepper motors would have to “drive” the laser head up, against gravity in the vertical direction, and “resist” being pulled down the other way. Seems doubtful it would work well, but maybe…
