I was trying the view scale factor in drawings and found that the view is not getting scaled as per the specified ratio.

I mean the distance from the page bottom to the block bottom is 41.486 mm (at 1:1 scale) then at 1:2 scale the distance should be 82.972 mm but it is showing as 73.236 mm. I have kept the sheet scale constant (1:1) and changing the view scale.

What am i doing wrong or is there any other zoom factor that solidworks is considering when scaling.


At 1:1 scale



At 1:2 scale



Thanking you,
