The 3D truss calculator determines the truss element loads given the user input loads and boundary conditions at
the applicable nodes.  The truss elements have pinned connections and therefore, do not carry or transmit
moments.  The chart shows both the unloaded and loaded configurations as well as the input loads and global
X,Y,Z axes.  The deflected shape can be user scaled and the configuration user rotated about the 3 global axes.  
The compressive loaded elements are compared against the theoretical Euler buckling load.
