The result of this operation is formed of coinciding parts of initial operands.
Operands can be either solids or surface bodies. By selecting various combinations of operands and using different options, you can get a variety of results of a Boolean operation.
Note that in certain cases, inadmissible combinations of operand types in a Boolean will not produce a valid result.
Below, we review possible operand combinations and corresponding results of the Boolean operation:

The result of intersection of two solids is the solid that is the common part of all operands.
1. Target body
2. Tool body
3. Overlapping two operands
4. Result of Boolean Intersection of solids
If a surface is selected as the target while a solid as the tool, then the Boolean Intersection operation will result in creation of a surface which is the common part of the two operands.
1. Surface target body
2. Solid tool body
3. Result of the Boolean Intersection of surface and solid bodies
Surface (with specifying direction of normal)  Solid
If a surface is selected as one of the operands with specifying normal direction, and a solid was selected as another operand, then the result of the Boolean Intersection operation is the part of the solid located by one side of the surface.
If surfaces bodies coincide within some region, then their common portion is left as a result of the Boolean Intersection.

2. Tool body
3. Result of the Boolean Intersection between the tool and target surface bodies
3. Result of the Boolean Intersection between the target and tool surface bodies
