Construct Line should allow the intersection of a cylinder with a plane which is parallel to the axis. To get both possible lines we can use the plane vector.

It would be helpful for 3D geometries to create a line/circle: cone geometry, sphere geometry, torus geometry.
For 2D geometries, it should also be possible to create a point when cutting a plane with a circle geometry or a line geometry.

This function would make my daily work easier.

While waiting for this to be implemented,
