Scripting FreeCAD with Python

A wise person recently told me:

"Release early, release often!"

So here goes... I know a teeny-weeny bit of Python and have recently learned to enjoy FreeCAD. This morning I discovered that FreeCAD can be scripted using Python, so here's my first attempt. Any hints are welcome.



The script creates a (very flat) cube, attaches four smaller flat cubes that serve as tenons, and then cuts out four small cubes that act as mortises. It ends by creating four simple copies of this piece, forming a four-piece puzzle.

The next step is to automate the inclusion of an SVG file on the surface of these pieces.
