You have to bear with me because this is all brand new to me. I am looking at making a template with fusion 360. I am trying to make the template to make this angle grinding gauge for high speed bit’s in order to just lay the piece of paper to perfectly align the holes on a piece of plate. I have watchEd some videos on fusion 360 but was not able to find a way in order to get the proper degrees on the rectangle that you make. Is there a way to do this? If so I could 3-D print it as well. Not really strong enough for the actual tool but it would be a great template. I’d like to have it set up for 8° 10° 15° and 30° at the top just like the picture. Or is there another way to do this?

The line tool lets you set the angle as well as distance. Start at the top and go roughy where you want to go, then hit tab to get to the angle entry box and type your angle.

thanks, was able to get the angles on and now just need to figure out how to get the holes in the right places.

use the point command to make points. then use the dimension command to locate the points in x and y dimensions. Then use the hole command on those points. You can also use the hole command to locate a hole with x and y dimensions for the location.

This fellow is an engineer who did a 16 part series on fusion 360. He starts simple and works up. You can even print his plan for each lesson. Well done.
