      Which coordinate system is used by the FSUM command?

      FSUM sums the nodal force and moment contributions of the selected elements attached to the selected nodes. By default, the force and moment summations are done in global Cartesian coordinate system and about the global origin. The summation point can be changed using the SPOINT command and the summed results can be transformed into another coordinate system using the RSYS command. Also, the results will only be updated to the deformed shape if large deflection active (NLGEOM,ON).
