A Cylinder does not seem to have an option to make it oblique. A Tube has an oblique center but does not seem to have an option to make the end caps oblique. One could plot a cylinder or tube that extends outside the plot region, to make it look oblique, but then the ends would not be closed and within the plot region. I searched StackExchange and found no mention of "oblique cylinder" or "slanted cylinder". Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

You can transform the Cylinder.
