Project vs trim

Hey quick question,

so sometimes i want to cut away a part, trim works most times but with circular shapes i have found using project fixes the rounding issues… gives a clear shape.

However sometimes project punches a hole, sometimes it fills and add the shape to the model im projecting on. so im not sure actually what project is doing.

curious how it works, checked the online docs, doesnt really hint too much.

If im on the edge of an object project will sort of cut through, if the middle crosses over, itll push that shape into it, and not cut… How is it actually used?


Project only works well, if center is not over the object you wanna cut. @ErikaCasab made a nice tutorial about it. I really can recommend her stuff as she explains single tools or tool families in detail, instead of all at once.
