Moai Software - This section deals with the software tools used to print with Moai. This includes Software for generating supports, hollow object, and slicing model into gcode. While firmware is technically a software, it is covered in the hardware section.
- File format:
STL - this is the file that contains model from design software. It is universally supported by most if not all 3D design and printing software. You can manipulate this type of file such as adding support and then export back out as STL file. You can also feed STL file to Cura (slicing) for converting to GCode
GCode - GCode is a universal text file used in many forms computer-aided manufacturing, including 3D printing. This file tells Moai where and when to fire the laser and do
