I have the following mesh: enter image description here

When I try to inset it, the distances between the edges are in equal distance:

enter image description here

But when I try to extrude them (by pressing e then s), I get uneven distances between the edges:

enter image description here

How can I extrude the edges evenly/do an inverted inset?

What you're trying to do is a Shrink/Fatten but with a simple series of vertices. I don't think you can do it with simple vertices but you could do it with a trick: Use the faces normals.

  • Extrude up your mesh.
  • altE to Extrude Region (Vertex Normals).
  • Drag to get what you want.
  • Only keep the shape you want.
