How do I remove the overlapping middle sections of these two merged cones? I need to remove the part of these two cones that makes it look like a Venn diagram; so that the two cones are one shape with one large opening and two small openings.

I'm trying to represent binocular vision, if that helps you understand.

Here are a couple screenshots: enter image description here enter image description here


Create a bottomless cone object centered around the midpoint between the two cones.

In Edit Mode move all the geometry to one side the required distance so the cone is centered on the eye.

Now add a Mirror Modifier to the cone and turn off clipping. Activate bisecting for the X axis (or whatever orientation fits your particular model) and it will cut the cones at the bisecting plane.
