Creation from Beam/Bar Element

The x axis is oriented from node GA to node GB of the element. The z axis is oriented as provided by the bar orientation of the element beam property. The coord is created at the selected origin node.

Creation from Shell Element

The x axis is oriented from the origin node to the x axis node. The z axis is provided by the sum of the normal of the 2D elements. The resultant vector is used as the z axis vector.
