Offset fill does not match fill

Hello first time posting. I have a low power two trees laser and was trying to decide if I wanted to use offset fill vs fill. But when I do the preview for offset fill it fills too much and the resulting preview looks nothing like the fill preview. See images.

Offset Fill requires a more complex calculation than regular Fill, and it can be thrown off by oddly placed nodes or overlapping lines.

In any case, Offset Fill is meant for designs with a lot of space in between graphics, to cut down on the amount of travel time necessary to fill large, hollow shapes. For the graphics you’re looking to engrave, regular Fill is the better choice.

Oh yeah that design had loads of overlapping lines. That makes sense. Well regular fill it is then.

Thank you.
