so I have this thing
two components, a disc and a cylinder stick. I want to strengthen the structure by adding another two oblique sticks at the base, so I copied the long stick, rotated and put into position.
Of course now I need to remove the excess parts, and that’s my problem. I tried to select the two sticks, which are components, and “intersect with selection”. I get this:
Then I tried to explode the oblique stick:
And erase the extra parts:
I’m not sure this is the best way to achive this, and it’s a lot of clicking. And, I can’t remove this blue lines or I’ll create holes in the shape:
Also if I try to erase the bottom part, the whole oblique stick disappears:
Should I explode the whole drawing? But then I won’t be able to modify the components, I loose them.
Attached is the source file for reference.
