Error Found in Shell Settings Description?

Posted · Error Found in Shell Settings Description?


The ultimaker website has the following description. Should it not say "leaves a gap of 0.025mm on both sides"? 


Outer wall inset

This setting compensates the position for the outer wall, if the line width chosen is smaller than the nozzle. For example: A line width of 0.35 with a 0.40mm nozzle leaves a gap of 0.05mm on both sides of the actual printed line. A compensation of 0.025 is set to compensate for the outermost part.
