is there a way to add an edge like a knife tool, but using an object to follow its shape? I'm having a hard time using the knife tool since it doesn't give me accurate results like curvature when cutting, and it's a pain in the ass to draw the knife tool manually. The following images below represents on what I want to happen using the boolean modifier by subtracting it, however I want the faces to be still intact instead of erasing/deleting those faces, basically just draw the shape of the hole by edges while the faces are still there.

Yes. It’s the “Intersect (Knife)” operator (as opposed to the “Intersect (Boolean)” operator).
