Beam Directions Wrong?

We are currently undertaking an analysis a weldment frame.  We have been attempting to generate beading moment diagrams and have had mixed success.

Our bending moment diagrams (see attached) appear to be correct but the orientation of direction 1 (green arrow) differs for each beam. I would expect the direction to be the same for each beam. Is this how solidworks interpreters it?

 

Has anyone encounted the same problem/result and how did they resulve it.

 

thanks in advance.
