An IMU includes XYZ accelerometers which you can use to measure inclination, I do not know how suitable are they for your problem. In order to have some accuracy, it needs to measure when not moving, which means must stop for a second (or even less) the cup in lowest position to get a correct (or at least a better) measure.

You need several accelerometers - one for each mobile segment and one for the base platform, then compute geometry knowing distances between joints.
