The term intersect is just intended to show the operation intersects mesh data.

  • Intersect (Knife): Only adds cuts/
  • Intersect (Boolean): Adds cuts and performs a boolean operation.

Internally they both share the same logic/limitations, One removes geometry based on boolean logic, another not.
