I've been looking for a solution to my problem for a couple of days. Some backstory, when I started at my current position we had a bunch of building footprints that were generated by a contractor from spotty As-Builts and aerial images (not too thrilled about their methodology). We need more accurate footrprints for our CAD and GIS integration, and I need to go through and compare the footprint to the As-Builts so we can determine which buildings we need to be resurveyed. I figured out how to auto annotate the dimensions of the existing footprints that we have using the "QDIM" command. However, the more I look at the buildings I'm noticing that a number of them aren't square (who would have thought that most buildings are square?), and what I would like to do is automatically annotate all the polyline angles because currently I'm going through and manually annotating each footprint, but there are hundreds. Is there a command for this? or am I doomed to days of clicking?
Thanks in advance,
seems like it should be possible by a running routine between each line segment of a polyline and then compare first and last segments - the gurus in the lisp discussion forum are more likely to answer on this one.... I can do it with alignments in C3D & have it as a default lable set for our waterline alignments, so it can be done. just haven't done it in Map/ACAD.
Best of Luck!

The interior angles from lines with a shared vertex. I normally work in ArcGIS and there are 3rd party tools to do this, but I work for an organization that has to certify plugins and software, so that's not an option. Even manually adding in the angle annotation is easier in Map3d.
