Angle snaps not working for me

Recommended Posts

I have a plan with the garage at the customer-specified 25 degree angle with the house.  It was not easy to draw, because I don't understand how to get angle snapping working for me.

 

I want snapping for walls and camera section views, and while I have added 12.5 and 25 as additional angles, nothing snaps to those.

Those angles should work just fine.  I think the problem is that those are not the angles you want.

 

See my picture below.  12.5 and 25 will let you draw the walls on the left side.  Note that this includes the walls that are orthogonal (at 90 degrees to them).

 

To get the walls on the right, try using 65 (or -25) and 77.5 (or -12.5) instead.

I added -25 and walls and CAD snapped correctly. Easy to draw 90 degrees off of the 25 degree lines too.
