Multi-extrude in one part

Hello,
Does anybody know a simple way to create an extrusion on multiple lines
in Pro/E inside the same part?
I'm working on a steel construction of a total building. I have the
lines that represent the hart of the steel beams.
A single extrusion works fine on one line only, but the as soon as the
extrusion are intersecting, Pro/E refuses to create the geometry.
Creating all different parts is no solution, because I have over 250
elements.
Can anyone think of a solution?
Thanks for responses,
Pim Marsman.

Doesn't look like either of these will work as I thought they might. Don't see why you wouldn't be able to create an i-beam with either thin protrusion or surface technique.

This should be an assembly, not a sketched feature. Even if it worked, it just bogs sketcher to a standstill. It's not AutoCAD, just sketching draft geometry. It's built on a variable solver which is calculating dimensions and contraints from each piece of geometry to the existing geometry. That alone is a big job. Complex sketches easily overwhelm sketcher, even if they don't completely fail.
