Tream extrusions between different directions

Otaola_FrancoOtaola_Franco Member Posts: 86 EDU
Is there any direct way to tream extrusions that are intersectin in a point? it is a little bit difficult to explain with words but beams does something similar when they are two, here is an image of what I am trying to describe:
the grey has "too much" and the red has a "howl" when the light blue is what I am looking for...

(i should clarify the angles are not the same between each original line.)
i know that from the grey i could take the extra with some other extrusions features, and the red one with a fill feature and then an enclosure would give something similar not exactly the same but in that direction....but wanted to know if there is any simple way that I am not seeing...

    Do the red one and use Delete Face to get rid of the “hole”.

    Tried the delete face and works nicely when there is only one part.
    I have been working through the same sort of problem a number of times and find that when I keep separate parts the delete face will not do the job.
    Have been making part 2 up to part/face but have to go back and do separate extrude remove to trim the next part in the sequence. There may be more than one trim needed. Very tedious.
    Would like to see the selection of up to part/face allow for selection of more than one item.
