Cutting a part in an assembly

What is the easiest way to trim a part in an assembly based on other parts?



For example, I have three parts made of square tubing, two are in an assembly arranged in a 90 degree fashion. I want to add the third part to this assembly to form a triangle, and I want to be able to use the other two parts to trim the third to get the angles.



TIA

Click on the component you want to trim> insert feature> cut>



then pick the plane or surface you want to use as sketching plane, use the use edge tool to select the two other components and trim your part
