Hi Yangqi,
The grid is where the points with values are in space.  If the points are spaced differently (different voxel size.), then the grids are different.  They are also different if the spacing is the same but the location or offset is different.

I tried using the command and I have been trying two maps which looks very similar, but with different resolution (3.6 A (yellow) vs 3.2 A (grey)) and with different pixel size (1.05 vs 0.822). Will this affect the gridding? (I am not very familiar with what you mean by the same grid).
