It appears that you have duplicate vertices in the area you are trying to extrude. Try Mesh>Clean-Up>Merge by Distance, then adjust the merge distance to get a good result. After this, to aid in the help of extruding and beveling, switch to object mode, then press CTRL+A and select Scale to apply scale. Now select that face in edit mode and try inserting face again. It should work.

  • $\begingroup$ @ Gezzamondo, Nate is right, you have overlapping vertices and it make the operation fail, you need to merge by distance to fix it. Also, inset is just an extrusion except it stays on the original plan of the face. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ So ive merged the 2 vertix on the outer edge to centre. but the 2 connected to the main face still seem to be messing up - ibb.co/X7MqqHz $\endgroup$
