We've talked about G-code at various points in this book. We know that it's the code that Slic3r produces and sends to the printer. What exactly is it though? How can we alter it directly to affect our prints? In this recipe, we'll look at a model sliced by Slic3r in order to better understand how our printer functions.
For this recipe, let's slice up one of our torture test files to look at. Let's take Snake by Zomboe (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4743) to look at.
We will slice the file and take a look at the generated G-code that Slic3r produces.
