I need exact values in "Evaluates to" column, what I entered in the "Value/Equation" column of Global variable in Equation.
Someone please look into it and help me out of this.
Thanks and Regards,
If your denominator is a 32nd...... .of course .00025 is going to be rounded to 0 That's 1/4000th of an inch.
I highly doubt anybody dealing in architecture cares about anything smaller than 1/32". And that's even pushing it.
Decimal precision for custom properties in SolidWorks - Computer Aided Technology
I found the main issue for this.
Since, I am using the Dual dimensions (Feet & Inches) in the "Custom" Unit style I am getting this problem. but If I changed back to any single dimensions it's work perfectly. Because of these I have to change my dimension style from Dual to Single.
If it is possible to get the exact values by using Dual dimensions please let me know.
Why not use single dimensions in your parts/assemblies so that it works? Then worry about dual dimensions on the drawings?
You can type in whatever units you want to use when you dimension anyway.
Actually I am working with Architectural product (Louver) and our end user work with Dual dimensions in Autocad. Since, Solidworks is also giving the functionality to use dual dimensions I suggested same thing to our end user but latter we found the issue with equation value. Now we have to stick with single dimension only.
If we can get solution for this issues by using Dual dimension only it would be better.
When I create the gv, it remains at the entered precision (even after closing and reopening it):
As a reminder, the dimensions will be rounded to the file's Units precision.
I'm on SW2018, so if you're on an earlier version, perhaps increasing the units precision in Document properties will remedy this for you.
But if you change the "Unit System" to "Custom" and select the Dual dimension in "Unit" you will get the issue.
Thanks and Regards,

This extra info does alter the situation.
So why change the units to feet and inches when such a small decimal number is involved?
You're 11.87 dimensions aren't displaying as 11-7/8", so how about changing the drawing units instead or just change the units in the drawing for those dimensions requiring feet and inches?
