Which kind of results do you mean exactly? Could you make a screen capture that illustrates what you want to compare please?

I don't want to compare any results I just want to know what are the differences between deflection and displacement ? I want definitions for both deflection and displacement used by Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis.

Thanks.

Does this illustration of deflection and displacement apply to a 3D frame ? Is there any sentence that defines deflection and displacement ?

Thanks.

Yes, it does. The displacements is the distance from the original position of a point to its final location on the deformed model. The deflection is the distance from the line that links the origin and end nodes of a bar on the deformed model with the position of a point on the deformed model.
