I want to align the diagonal beam so that the top right part is connected the same way as the bottom left part (as shown in the left picture below), so there is still a bit of the diagonal beam connected to the vertical one. I've tried lots of different things to get it connected the way i want, but with the snapping tool I only manage to get one side properly connected, on the other side it always snaps to the wrong vertex. In the past I did estimate what looked kind of nice, but for a project I'm currently working on it needs to be spot on. Is there any way to do this properly?

what i have vs what i need

  • $\begingroup$ Hi and welcome. You can try Shearing, which is achieved in Edit Mode by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + S. In the Shearing Mini-mode, press X or Y to define the shearing axis. Note: Shearing works off of your view plane. $\endgroup$ – Patisawesome200 Jul 1 at 0:22

To have proper topology and avoid overlapping faces, create a loop cut on the two columns, one cut on the bottom of the left column, and one and a cut on the top of the right column.

enter image description here

Then select the newly created faces on the inside and do Bridge Edge Loops to join them with new faces. (the shortcut is Ctrl+E and select bridge edge loops)

  • $\begingroup$ This is a good solution, but with this the diagonal has a different width than the vertical ones. And i need them all to be the same (0.04m) :/ $\endgroup$ – basvereiken Jun 30 at 23:21
  • $\begingroup$ just set the correct height for the cuts to give you the width you need. I did a lazy demonstration of the workflow. You can do it right for your needs with the appropriate mesurements. $\endgroup$ – susu Jun 30 at 23:23
