       LeoCAD - CAD program for LEGO models.


       leocad [ infile [ -i [ outfile.ext ] [-w x] [-h y] ] ] [-l path]


       LeoCAD  is a CAD program for creating virtual LEGO models. It has an easy to use interface
       and includes thousands of different parts in its library.


       Below is a summary of all of the options  that  LeoCAD  accepts.  Most  options  have  two
       equivalent names, one of which is a single letter preceded by -, and the other of which is
       a long name preceded by --. Brackets ([ and ]) indicate that an option takes  an  optional

       infile Loads the project file infile

       -i [outfile.ext]
       --image [outfile.ext]
              Saves  a picture to outfile.ext  in the image format specified by ext and exits. If
              outfile is not given then the program will use a name based  on  infile.  The  file
              format  is  selected  by ext and can be gif, bmp, png or jpg (if ext is not present
              then the default preferences format will be used).

       -w width
       --width width
              Sets the width of the picture to width.

       -h height
       --height height
              Sets the height of the picture to height.

       -f time
       --from time
              Start saving pictures at the step time.

       -t time
       --to time
              Save pictures until the step time.

       -m model
       --model model
              Sets the active submodel to model.

       -c camera
       --camera camera
              Sets the active camera to camera.

       --viewpoint front back left right top bottom home
              Sets the viewpoint to one of the predefined angles.

              Use an orthographic projection.

              Adds a border around the pieces in the step they appear when saving pictures.

       -l path
       --libpath path
              Use alternate parts library found in path .   The  Linux  version  of  LeoCAD  uses
              /usr/share/leocad/ as the default.

       -obj [outfile.obj]
              Exports the model to wavefront format.

       -3ds [outfile.3ds]
              Exports the model to 3DS format.

       -dae [outfile.dae]
              Exports the model to COLLADA DAE format.

       -html [path]
              Creates an HTML page for the model.

       --html-parts-width width
              Sets the width of the part pictures when creating HTML pages to width.

       --html-parts-height height
              Sets the height of the part pictures when creating HTML pages to height.


       ``LEOCAD_LIB'' may be set to the path of the parts library.


        $ leocad car.lcd -i car.png -w 640 -h 480

       This  will  start  LeoCAD,  load  the file "car.lcd," create a png called "car.png" with a
       resolution of 640x480 and exit when done.
