I'm planning to print objects at once, but i have to set my print head size. Is there any image o visual guide of how of this mesurement is to be made? I don't get the meaning of size toward something. I suppose the whole block, but just to be sure ;) ! Thanks in advice.

    If you hover your mouse over the settings it will explain it. It's simply a measurement of the size of the head from the tip of the nozzle in each direction.

    So to take the Ultimaker as an example. "Head size towards X min" would be the size of the head measured from the tip of the nozzle towards the left side of the printer.
