Draw Bearing using AutoCAD


I don’t have the Land Development program. How do I draw a bearing with AutoCAD?


To draw a line from a point, a distance of 23.67 feet, at a bearing of North 25 degrees 33 minutes 45 seconds West:

Command: l LINE Specify first point: [pick point]
Specify next point or [Undo]: @23.67<N25d33’45"W
Specify next point or [Undo]: [enter]

To see line displayed in surveyor units, format your units accordingly.

The above URL contains the entire discussion. Below is a snippet.

There used to be a lisp routine that you could enter the data (file) with the bearings and length, starting from a point and going clockwise and it would print the entire series of lines.
