A slicing software is required to process and interpret the 3D model into the language FFF 3D printers understand. FlashPrint is the slicing software used for the FlashForge Dreamer. FlashPrint will slice the 3D model into numerous layers and output it as a .g file, which is the format read by the Dreamer. The file is then transferred to the Dreamer by USB cable, SD card, or Wi-Fi. Once the output file has been transferred to the Dreamer, it will start
to turn the 3D model into a physical object by laying down layers of filament.
