Rotating a drawing

Is there a way to see exactly what angle a 3D drawing has been rotated to?  I'm attemtping to rotate multiple drawings but I want them to be at the same angle.

Is this in DTV or another Autodesk product?

Best I can tell the most you can do is use the Presets that are available under the dropdown View, Named Views, Preset Views.

In Help this is Views, 3D views for more information

So there is no way to rotate to my preferred angle and then save that as a preset?

Not that I see.

DTV is very limited and only meant to view a drawing. User input does not have much sway there.

Would there be a way for me to do it if I had AutoCad?

Okay so how would I go about creating my own custom rotation setting in AutoCAD?

UCS command.
https://www.google.com/#q=rotate+a+drawing+in+autocad
or
DVIEW command, TWIST option.

Experiment, find out which one works best for your needs, if you get stuck anywhere post back with details on what you've chosen to do and how you went about it.
