To fill out what Glenn said.

 

I usually draw a temporary wall to use as a backstop while drawing a p-solid in elevation. The p-solid will locate itself against the wall so it's easy to find.

 

If you know the angle, draw a CAD line and set it to that angle. Then use the Make Parallel tool to make the sides of the p-solid the correct angle. Set the thickness and material. Copy it over the required distance, then block the 2 together.

 

Copy the block to the other locations.
