As part of a research project I'm currently working on I'm planning to print on a curved surface. I have considered rotary/tilt tables, which are used in WAAM (wire arc additive manufacturing), for example. But these are usually large, heavy and expensive. Robotic arms (5 or 6 DOF) that are precise enough while carrying the weight of the print head are rather expensive as well.
I found that the HevORT might just be the solution for my problem. However, I couldn't find information on the maximum tilt angle that the bed will allow for. Could you give me a hint which maximum tilt angle can be achieved and if the construction could easily be adapted to increase the maximum tilt angle?

With a bed size of 500x500 between pickup points at the Z swivels you can get around 23.5 degrees of tilt with a displacement of around 40mm on each side of the sliders. Your construction might have different limitations.
