I am trying to extrude the center of a barrel.

enter image description here

The model on the left side shows what it should look like. The model on the right side shows how it goes wrong for me. I would like to extrude to all sides so that it looks like the left image. However, it only extrudes to one direction.

I have also tried "e" and Alt + s, but that also gives me a weird result: enter image description here

How can I extrude to all sides?

Thank you.

Press E, then S and then Shift+Z.

  • $\begingroup$ Why use ALT + S, wouldn't using normal scaling be simpler (defaulting to the global coordinates instead of the normals)? $\endgroup$ – TARDIS Maker Aug 25 '15 at 12:37

Weird effects of the Alt+S commend are probabliy caused by a non-uniform objectìs scale. By applying the scale before running it, all should work as expected.

If you don't want to apply the scale to your object you can scale the faces and set the Z value to 1 in order to keep the up/down faces flat.
