Shrink/Fatten Along Normals

Mode: Edit mode

Panel: Mesh Tools (Editing context)

Hotkey: AltS

Menu: Mesh » Transform » Shrink/Fatten Along Normals

This tool translates selected vertices/edges/faces along their own normal (perpendicular to the face), which, on “standard normal meshes”, will shrink/fatten them.

This transform tool does not take into account the pivot point or transform orientation.
