How to Plot Bending Moment Diagram

I wrote a piece of code to solve any 2D frame-type structures problem. As my output, I generated the following:
  • Displacement at each node
  • Shapefunction for Bending Moment in each member M(x)
  • Shapefunction for Shear Force in each member V(x)
  • Shapefunction for Displacement of each member Y(x)
Now I would like to plot the the Displaced shape, shear force diagram, and bending moment diagram for the entire structure. To do that, I am planning on starting each shapefunction at the Start node of the member, then plot it x=0:Length and then rotate it in the same angle as the moment.
How would I go ahead to do this? I have no idea how to rotate and position a plot accordingly.
References: This is roughly what I would like my plot to look like (for bending moment and displaced shape): http://debug.pi.gr/BookImagesEn2/Book-B_3330_7a.jpg
