Flex feature changes cross section dimensions

Hello,

 

I've created a bar from an extruded rectangle, then applied the flex feature to twist the bar 90 degrees about its centroidal axis.  When I take a cross section midway down the bar, it is smaller in both x- and y-directions than the original cross section that I sketched to create the bar before the twist.  The ends of the bar still have these original dimensions.  Can anyone explain why this happened?

 

Thank you,

Jack
