I do not have a problem in general to discuss. Just wondering if anyone has any good suggestions into helping me solve statics problems. We are currently working equilibrium problems in 3 dimensions. I don't have a problem with the math as much as just setting up the equations. I am struggling recognizing the x, y, and z components. I find myself writing the z components for i (or x) and vise versa. I am getting the signs incorrect also. I know you guys need more info to help but I really don't know how to put it into words.

Any general suggestions for me that you all have used when working statics problems in 3-D????
