I set this up before and the meaning of this dawned on me then, and now after a system reinstall I have to set it up again and I forgot what exactly these parameters represent.

 

is X min the distance from the left of the extruder carriage to the hotend?
is Y min the distance from the front of the extruder carriage to the hotend?
is X max the distance from the hotend to the right of the extruder carriage?
is Y max the distance from the hotend to the back of the extruder carriage?

the tooltip is the same on all the fields so the exact meaning of the parameters is just a little ambiguous to me.

Thanks.

    I think you got it right but not certain.  If you place a tiny print into cura you should see the appropriate shadow around it.  Maybe.
