3DFrame update

The update to the Glob_to_loc3 and Loc_to_glob3 functions (and associated functions) has now been transferred to the 3DFrame spreadsheet, which will now give correct results when beams are defined in the global negative Z direction.  The revised spreadsheet (including full open source code and compiled solver files) may be downloaded from:


See 3DFrame with spring releases for more details, including examples, and 3D Frames, axes and stiffness matrices for information on local axis conventions used, and details of the procedure for generating the 3D stiffness matrix.
