Simple beam simulations

    Hi all,

Trying to run a simple beam simulation in solidworks. I have used one of my own excel calcualtion sheets, and also the beam calculator in solidworks to predict the deflection of the beam under its own weight. The 2 calculation sheets come with very similar values, but then the simulation is quite far out. Has anybody got any ideas or suggestions, i have a feeling it is down to either a load or a fixture but cant work it out.
