Techread Subcommand

The techread subcommand allows you to submit your Technical Drawing and ask Werk24 to return certain details about it. We call these details "asks". See API/Asks for a more detailed description. While the API allows you to define your asks in a more granular way, the CLI will always request each ask with its default attributes.
