An easy way to get started is to instal gCAD3D in /opt/ as /opt/gCAD3D/ and in its /opt/gCAD3D/dat/ directory make a symbolic link to the unpacked Neo_FreeRunner_GTA02_casing directory. Then start from /opt/gCAD3D/ the application with ./gCAD3D and via 'Open Model' in the 'File' menu you are able to select NEW-DIR and go to the step or iges directory and select either load gta02-mme01_asm.stp or gta02-mme01_asm.igs. Note that both imports are done differently and both have their own particular buffer overflow errors. Try them both from a freshly started gCAD3D. Please improve these instructions when possible.
