Chamfering by Specifying Length and Angle in AutoCAD

You can chamfer two objects by specifying where on the first selected object the chamfer line starts. Then specify the angle the chamfer line forms with this object. In the following example, you chamfer two lines so that the chamfer line starts 1.5 units along the first line and forms an angle of 30-degrees with this line.
