    Depending what version of Acad you are using you can do this using the polar tracking, you would just need to edit the angle settings to what you require.

    Have a look at the POLAR function.

    At autocad command prompt enter @distance<angle

    Command: line
    LINE Specify first point:
    Specify next point or [Undo]: @10<135

    draws a line 10 units long at 135degs

    oh just a thought, if the angle is on the ending plane(i.e. the side i want to reach) is it possible to draw the line?? it's like i want to draw a line from a point to a line, the position of the line is unknown but i know this line will touch this point at an angle. thanks
