I have three i beams, two of them are perpendicilar and one is diagonal to others. I am trying to merge the end of diagonal beam with the other two beams. I tried the options "Trim Extend & Notch" for merging this, but it does'nt work properly. i am not getting a perfet result. My intension is to merge the web to web and flanfe to flange.

Kindly advise if somebody knows any option. Please find the attached image more clear explanation.

Edit the beam to be cut in the context of the assembly.
Copy Object the cutting surfaces from surrounding parts as needed.

Sculpt or Split away the excess material.
