Rafter supported cone roof modelling on ANSYS WORKBENCH

Dear ALL,

I am new to ansys workbench. I am working on a project in which i am checking rafter supported cone roof. Kindly tell me how i should do the modelling.As per my understanding, one way is to do the modelling, by drawing the UPN rafter using line body.One end of this rafter i want to connect with a cleat, as shown in the attached sketch. The other end will also be bolted to a cleat welded to circular drum. MY question is i drawing the cleat as surface the how i connect the cleat with rafter. For starter i am assuming that i will be welding the cleat with rafter. i have been told that that i cannot join surface with line body, so i modeled the rafter as surfaces, and joined surfaces of rafter and cleat as one part. Kindly advice
