Inquiry: Direction of Z-axis in JAG3D Software

Dear JAG3D Technical Support,

I hope this message finds you well. I am currently a user of the JAG3D software and I have a question regarding the orientation of the Z-axis in the software.

While analyzing the calculations performed by JAG3D, I noticed that the displacement in the Z-axis is calculated using the following formula: Z0 - Z, instead of Z - Z0. This has intrigued me as I would like to understand in which direction the Z-axis is oriented in the software.

Could you please clarify whether, in JAG3D, the Z-axis is directed upwards or downwards? This information will be crucial for me to correctly interpret the results and calculated displacements in the software.

Thank you in advance for your attention and valuable assistance. I look forward to receiving your response to continue my work with a clear understanding of the axis orientation in JAG3D.

Best regards,
