be sure to select the line at the startpoint of the lin instead of the end point. Otherwise your ucs is rotated 180dg th wrong way

Acad/Icad describes angles relative to the current UCS. If you want to draw 57 degrees from an angle other than zero in your current UCS, you have to change the UCS so that your first line's angle is zero. (UCS>E>Pick end of line near where you want the origin) It's not very easy to do repeatedly. If you want to draw this way a lot, you could write a lisp do help you.

Copy the existing line in place. That is, pick any point for the "from" point and type "@" (without quotes) for the "to" point. Now "rotate" "last" by 57 (or -57).
