measure error

measure error

when I measure a distance, the display in the graphic area is not the same in the table, see the attached picture.

Is it the problem of the monitor, or other reason?

please give me a hand.

thanks.

While I don't know the answer to your question, this problem seems to be bigger than just this measurement.
In your screen capture, you have:
"PartBod" instead of "PartBody"
"urface.2" instead of "Surface.2"
"easure Between" instead of "Measure Between"
etc.
I can't imagine what's causing this problem.

The value in the table is correct although you have the mode set to approximate which is normally used for measurements in CGR mode.

I guess you have a problem with your graphics card not your monitor.

Do you have a certified graphics card utilising the latest drives?

I had such problems several times. In one case it was model problem and it solved by CATDUA utility.But in your case it looks like video card problem.Try to change drivers for you card. (note that sometimes the latest drivers not the best one )

Not sure what card you have, but here is a link to Dessault certified drivers for Nvidia Quadro graphics cards.

thank you very much, i think it maybe the card's problem. I will test it.

Are you using a laptop with a widescreen?
If so, you can try something like this.

CATWidthMMOfScreen=340 [display width in mm]
CATHeightMMOfScreen=200 [display height in mm]

The Video card looks like the issue for me. A coworker was checking thicknesses and got strange values. .500 was showing .495-.505.  I tried it on my box with a good Nvidia card, and it showed the proper thicknesses.
