    using preposition "of"

    I was told that it would be better to use as fewer successive of's as possible.

    Please tell me what phrase is preferred in English:

    Printing of parameters of cells

    Printing of cell parameters

    Printing of cells parameters

    Cells parameters printing

    Cell parameter printing


    There are several cells and several parameters.


    In general, how many successive of's is admitted in the English language?

    Thanks

    It would be helpful if you could give us a complete sentence.
