He means that EstlCAM is only used for generating the toolpaths, as in, where the machine will send its primary tool to at any given time.

Repetier-host is a slicing AND gcode “serving” program – so it can take the gcode you made in EstlCAM and turn it into something the machine’s firmware (in this case a Marlin variant, if I’ve done my research) can actually understand as a series of commands.
