Inconsistent Rounding Between SolidWorks and Inspection Add-In

Hello,

 

I have experienced a bug in the rounding behavior between SolidWorks and Inspection Add-In. When a limit tolerance is applied to three places, with the last digit being a 5 (ex: +.025), and the precision is only displayed to two places, SolidWorks rounds the number UP on the drawing, but rounds DOWN inside Inspection. I attached a photo showing the discrepancy.


I realize displaying a three place tolerance with two places is not proper, but SolidWorks should round numbers consistently within its own software nonetheless. Curious to see if there is any workaround for this.

 

Thanks,
Jeff
