Save a Boolean Tool into a library for future use??

Hello! I was wondering if there is a way to save a Boolean Tool (or a part) to a library for future use? If you want to recreate a company logo, like the "swoosh", that you would use on multiple parts. If I remember right, SolidWorks Sheet Metal had punches or forming tools that could be reused, for example to make a louver.

    Even if you could DXF/DWG out a sketch to a file and then bring that back into a sketch. Similar to copying entities from AutoCAD and pasting those into a SolidWorks sketch. That was REALLY handy to "upgrade" from a 2D universe!

    I see how the "Copy A Sketch" could be used to save a Boolean tool to a "library" of sketches! Kinda like SolidWorks weldment sections!
