Is it possible to define a type searchableBox with an angle?

I want to specify a region for a rectangular area that is not parallel to the yz plane.

Thank you

Nope :/ i found a workaround, drew it in a CAD program, where it should be, then exported it as an *.stl - Then it had it shape and rotation.

Thanks for the workaround.

I saw your another post about editing snappyHexMeshDict with coordinateRotation. I am trying to figure out a solution in this direction. Any suggestion from your experience?
