Intersect without discarding objects?

Recommended Posts

Hello. Is it possible to intersect two objects and preserve both objects, plus the new intersect object. I can achieve this by duplicating the objects, then intersecting, but I am hoping for an easier way. Thank you!

firstdefence, many thanks for responding.

I noticed that Alt click does that and it preserves the objects, but it does not simplify things in the sense of it being a time-saver, which is what I was after. I hoped there would be a Shift click or Ctrl click or maybe a setting somewhere so that I could customize the default behavior. Thanks anyway.
