freecadcmd [options] files
FreeCAD is an Open Source CAx RAD based on OpenCasCade, Qt and Python. It features some key concepts like macro recording, workbenches, ability to run as a server and dynamically loadable application extensions and it is designed to be platform independent.
freecad starts with a GUI while freecadcmd is only a pure command line version that starts a Python interpreter.
These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of the options supported by freecad is included below.
- -h, --help
Show summary of options.
- -v, --version
Show version of program.
- -c, --console

- --response-file arg

- -l, --write-log

- -t, --run-test arg
- -M, --module-path arg
Additional module path.
