Depending on where you installed Cura the default would be:

/Applications/Cura/Cura.app/Contents/MacOS/Cura

For example to get the help

/Applications/Cura/Cura.app/Contents/MacOS/Cura -h

Usage: cura.py [options] <filename>.stl

 

Options:

-h, --help show this help message and exit

-i PROFILEINI, --ini=PROFILEINI

Load settings from a profile ini file

-r PRINTFILE, --print=PRINTFILE

Open the printing interface, instead of the normal

cura interface.

-p PROFILE, --profile=PROFILE

Internal option, do not use!

-s, --slice Slice the given files instead of opening them in Cura

-o OUTPUT, --output=OUTPUT

path to write sliced file to

--serialCommunication=SERIALCOMMUNICATION

Start commandline serial monitor
