Best angle to mount the intake roller

Will making the rollers parallel to the tray help push up the cubes?

Probably parallel, because the force vector will be optimally aligned with the desired motion vector, right? In other words, you want the direction you push the cubs in to be the same as the direction they should move in. This should give you the highest possible force, allowing you to intake the most cubes.

One thing to note, the cubes are prone to falling out when the intakes are close to being parallel to the tray, so I would sacrifice some intake performance by angling them a bit more to help the cubes stay in the tray.
