 Slicing is the step to convert model STL file to GCode for printing. ​ It is called slicing because the slicer cuts the model to many thin layers and then calculates required printer actions to recreate layer by layer. ​ Slicing is the step to convert model STL file to GCode for printing. ​ It is called slicing because the slicer cuts the model to many thin layers and then calculates required printer actions to recreate layer by layer. ​
  
-For many FDM printer workflows, slicing is often done together with preparation and that led many users to believe slicing includes actions such as support generation or rotation. ​ For Moai workflow, Slicing is just for converting STL file into GCode, all other activities are done in preparation software.+For many FDM printer workflows, slicing is often done together with preparationand that led many users to believe slicing includes actions such as support generation or rotation. ​ For Moai workflow, Slicing is just for converting STL file into GCode, all other activities are done in preparation software.
