Believe it has something to do with stepper motors generating electricity and backfeeding into the ramps/ drivers and burning them out. A number of companies offer brake add-ons for steppers..not sure how that would affect your ability to mount and cost however… And that would last only as long as it was powered. That said… way cool idea and if feasible… I can always use more space.
