Hi Matthis.
I f you look at MySif file you can see the scaling 0.001 and the Picture: My Beam.jpeg
show the dimensions is m.
The figures is wrong the correct is 0.065 m or if the scaling is missing 65 mm or 6.5 cm.

Ok, I had understood that your sif files were exactly identical. There is also a difference in the boundary contidions. Did you check that the numbering in your beam and the tutorial beam differ accordingly? If not, the force would be applied to a different side of the beam, changing the result.
You can also try if the result changes with a finer mesh.

HTH,
Matthias
