We have developed an alignment tool for optical lattices with arbitrary beam angles, allowing for optical potentials with a range of geometries and topographies. A calibration procedure has been introduced, giving a precision of 10 mrad in the chosen beam angle, and a high degree of flexibility. The tool has been tested in simplified experiments on the confinement and expansion of cold atoms in one-dimensional and two-dimensional optical lattices, and has proved to work well.
