You'll probably have to use construction lines to do what you want for
drawing rotated angles, and use construction circles to draw the holes.
You go to 'Draw' -> 'Con. Lines' -> 'Angled' to draw the angled
construction lines, and you can enter the angle you want after you
define the point by either clicking in the drawing area or entering it
in the entry box. For construction circles, go 'Draw' -> 'Con.
Circs.' -> 'Center Pt.', define the center point by clicking or entering
it, then enter the radius in the entry box.
PythonCAD currently doesn't have a 'Rotate' function, but that sounds
like a feature that would be good to implement.
