Boolean - Union or Intersect; Keep Tools??
I just noticed this. I was creating a Boolean of a "hub" and a circular pattern of a "fan blade". Once I did a Union, I no longer have the original Parts. There is no option for "Keep Tools". Same with Intersect. Lets say I had a fan with 4 blades and one with 8 blades. I could modify the Circular Pattern to 4 patterns, create a Boolean-Merge-Keep Tools. Then move that out of the way. Modify the Circular Pattern to 8 patterns and create Boolean-Union-Keep Tools to create a 8 Blade Part! Always open to other's techniques!
