Display stress/strain results using element local axes

I think it would be great to be able to view stress/strain results using each element's local material axes vs the global coordinate system. The goal would be to look at circumferential and radial stress and strain for cylindrical type shapes such as arteries, intervertebral disc, etc., where the global X and Y measures have little anatomical meaning. An alternate would be to view results in a cylindrical coordinate system, but if elements are regularly aligned and their material axes are prescribed such that local x1 is in the circumferential direction, local stresses and strains should work well and would allow you to maintain anatomical significance even if an object is aligned oblique to the global axes. This may be more of a feature request for FEBio vs PostView
