What is a Slicer Software?
Slicer software or slicing software is a program that converts/slices 3D-formated files into 2D printable layers.
The 3D printer then reads each 2D printable layer and instructions, including parameters such as layer height, exposure time, speed settings, etc, and prints each layer accordingly, one at a time.
