freecad [options] files
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.
