Adjusting Firecalc for 72t distributions

I am planning on early retirement starting in the next year or two.* Most of my funds are invested in a 401k.* I would like to use firecalc to simulate a withdrawal rate that is fixed for the first 10 years and then adjusted for inflation.

I ran the calculator using a fixed withdrawal (no CPI/PPI) with a life span of ten years.* I then used the average portfolio balance for a second projection for 30 years.

Is this an accurate calculation or am I missing something?* I would love to hear from others with the same issue.
