P.S. This was an experiment model to force me to dive into LDCad. I forgot how much of a pain the angles in a Technic model can be. So much trig was done today and this was a small model with only one unusual connection.

Most of the time, LDCad can do the trig for you! triangle measurement and triangle closure tools are especially helpful. See https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZpFpM0Gl_0f8PiScwv1gT-achapIR6Y0
Another useful trick for the bent beams: use snapping of one or the other end crossholes on an axle pin to orient beam as you want and forget about 3-4-5 traingle angle values!
