Connecting a beam element to a solid element

I have a question on how to go about connecting a beam element to a solid body in ANSYS DesignModeler

I am modelling a spider web in a corner between a wall and roof under wind loading and have created a line body of the plane of the web and solid body for the wall and roof. I want to be able to connect the line body of the web to the roof and wall by using beam elements at 8 distinct locations on the web.
If I create a new sketch it will not allow me to create a line body using the lines I have drawn connecting the two other bodies.

Does ANSYS support the connection of beam elements to solid elements?
