Hi Zuhair,

I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly but I'll try.

You need a list of all available cylinders you have and then you can calculate it by the design height (printing direction!!).

For example you have a design height of 240mm.

If you have a cylinder that is 240mm - you can print one image (1x240mm).
If you have a cylinder that is 480mm - you can print two images (2x240mm).
..and so on.
