Measure the angle between two planes

I have a model that includes several planes (to bend sheet metal) and I need to know the angle of the bend. Since the measurement tool (parts-studio) only works in 2D, how do I measure the angle?

    Could someone explain now I could measure this angle using FeatureScript? My first approach was:

    Query for a face
    test if face could be plane
    convert to plane
    if plane, take normal and compare to known unit vector using acos(dot(v1,v2))

    I still haven't gotten that to work.
