This because this direction parameter goes into z-direction and this parameter should not go in the same direction as the edge member. Just try an simple line mesh in global z-direction.
I do consider this a bug in calculix.
The description of the beam element in the Calculix documentation describes how the local directions of the beam are determined. It should be sufficient to set the 1-Direction in a *Beam Section card to another direction than the global z-axis.

The error only happens with B32-elements. B31-elements do work in global z-axis. See the example input-file.

I did do a mailing list post a few month ago in this regard but I only got answer in the regard of how to avoid it. Guido Dhondt did not answer in this regard. I may post it again. It is a pitty calculix mailing list archive is only readable for logged in users.

I did not know it only apears on 3-node beam and not on 2-node beam. I need to test this too.

I started to write an export module for Freame3DD.

@chakkree:
All files on Frame3DD uses tab as delimiter. Do you know if Frame3DD accepts spaces as well?

I replace tabs with spaces in exA.3dd and run frame3dd.
Frame3DD accepted spaces for data separate.

I think. Tab separator may use when the user writes input file with a spreadsheet.
