I am trying to extrude this so all edges are equal distance from their origin edges?

enter image description here

But when I extrude and size them it turns out like this.

enter image description here

How can I get them equal distance apart?

enter image description here

When I change the Offset it doesn't extrude like yours is? Mine goes to the side?

You could use Extrude Along Vetex Normals on the side faces. It requires a bit of cleanup afterwards

  1. Delete the top faces
  2. Extrude side faces along vertex normals normals Alt + E
  3. Delete extra faces
  4. Bridge the two remaining edgeloops with Bridge Edge Loops

Extrude vertex normalss

EDIT Make sure your your mesh is uniformly scaled on all axis, and you have applied scale to the object, otherwise the operation will still be deformed. Use the operator panel to the left of the 3D screen to introduce accurate distances

  • $\begingroup$ It's the "loop select" operator, by default Alt + Rightmouse button $\endgroup$ Jun 27, 2016 at 0:15
  • $\begingroup$ When I push Alt +E it just expands it outward I cant get it to size? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, just check the tool shelf to the bottom left of the 3D view, there will appear an operator panel afterwards with options. You can specify accurate distances there $\endgroup$ Jun 27, 2016 at 0:16

    $\begingroup$ @Muly options can be tweaked right after that, you can also see it by hitting F6. $\endgroup$ Jun 27, 2016 at 0:26
