I'd like to add a loop cut but have it be at an angle. I'm used to houdini, so the best comparison I can make for this is to use a clip node in houdini and just rotate the plane to the angle I want. As far as I can tell in blender you can only add a loop on a specific axis. Is there a way to have it rotated?

    $\begingroup$ Hi :). Knife Project with a simple plane might be what you're looking for. You can rotate the plane to any angle and then "project it" onto geometry to make a loopcut $\endgroup$ May 9, 2022 at 19:04

The closest equivalent in Blender is the Bisect tool, which can be activated from the T toolbar, or simply by LMB dragging a line across selected mesh elements.

enter image description here

Here, the tool has been set to remove the geometry of the backfacing side of the clipping plane. As you can see, there are options, including simply cutting a planar cross-sectional edge-loop. You can rotate the clipping plane about View Z by dragging on the gizmo's circle, or numerically, by setting the plane's normal vector.
