Trim doesn't work, use SUBTRACT

the subtract command subtracts the whole pink solid and leaves the empty shape in the sphere, I just need to cut the part that sticks out from the bottom of the sphere!

Thanks for the challenge, it was not as EZ as I thought.

I had to make a copy of the model, SUBTRACT the unwanted parts, then SEPARATE them, after that I move them back to the original position.
