[Chimera-users] Using sym command to generate icosahedral cage

I noticed that the sym command can be used to generate icosahedral
symmetry, but it requires that the molecule to be oriented in specific ways
(222, 2n5, n25, ...), which requires aligning the symmetry axes to the X, Y
or Z axes. I am wondering if there is a way to specify the symmetries axes
by vectors (instead of aligning them to the three principal axes) and then
use sym command to generate the whole icosahedral cage?
