G code

For 3D printer control instructions, there is the G- code with machine-readable control instructions and print commands for the 3D printer.

The G-code is derived from the slicer, which divides the print object into many thin layers that are layered on top of each other to form the print object. By slicing the 3D print object in software, the G-code can be used to define various parameters for each individual layer. For example, the starting point and printing speed for printing a layer, the movements of the extruder, the laser, those of the print bed or those of other components of the 3D printer. There are commands for specific action instructions, many of which relate to the different layers of 3D printing.
