openscad: Open a file.
$ openscad ${path-to-button-scad}
try on your machine

The command "openscad ${path-to-button-scad}" is a command line instruction using the software "OpenSCAD" to open a specific SCAD file. Here is its breakdown:

  • "openscad" is the command used to launch the OpenSCAD software from the command line.
  • "${path-to-button-scad}" is a placeholder that represents the actual path (location) of the SCAD file you want to open. You need to replace "${path-to-button-scad}" with the actual file path, including the file name and extension (e.g., "C:\folder\button.scad").

In summary, when you run the command with the correct path to the SCAD file, OpenSCAD will be launched, and the specified SCAD file will be displayed in the software for further 3D modeling or rendering.

This explanation was created by an AI. In most cases those are correct. But please always be careful and never run a command you are not sure if it is safe.
