    The Solver CalculiX (new framework) command creates a SolverCalculix object, which uses the same framework as Elmer and Z88 solvers (the code is not visible for the user). It is preferred to use the original framework FEM SolverCalculixCxxtools.svg Solver CalculiX Standard because it contains extra checks, e.g. showing the elements with nonpositive Jacobian which might cause solution difficulties.
