The Axis Drill tool allows you to perform Boolean like operations using 2D polygons projected down a specified axis. The background layer geometry is used as the Boolean operator onto the foreground geometry.

Options for Drill include:
Core: Cuts away everything outside the 2D outline projected onto the polygons.

Stencil: Projects the 2D outline onto the polygons without removing either the inside or
outside. Applies a default material to the new geometry within the outline.

Tunnel: Cuts a hole using the 2D outline, removes the inside.

Slice: Same as Stencil, does not affect the surface material.

Axis: Defines across which axis the user wants to project the drill function.
