    multiple intersections

    Hello all! I am trying to undertake multiple intersections to create roof trusses for a flat roof. I have created a solid roof with the right shape, slope, and trough cut out and would like to use this to generate the trusses by intersecting with multiple truss elements to get the correct shape and slope. I can generate one intersection at a time but then the solid roof disappears. When i try to select all the trusses and do them at once it gives me an error message "you have tried to create an empty solid object" . The highlighted profile in the attached image is the solid roof with the multiple truss elements to be "cut" shown. Is there another way to generate these framing elements? the top of the truss is sloped with the bottom of the truss flat. If anyone can help with this I would really appreciate it! Thank you
