3D sketch intersecting solid?

Suppose I have a solid, and I want to use a 3D sketch to make extruded cuts through that solid. Suppose also that the 3D sketch tapers to a point. How can I use the 3D sketch to get Solidworks to make an extruded cut through the solid that is bounded by the 3D sketch? In the picture below, the area bounded by the cylinder and the dotted lines is what I want to remove.



Using Extruded Cut with Taper is not an option since I need to repeat this for a variety of angles and taper distances and I have no desire to calculate the specific angle for each cut. I feel like Solidworks has all the information it needs to do this, I just need to find the correct command to get it to do what I want.
