Alt-S

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.

Offset Even S, Alt

Scale the offset to give it a more even thickness. A greater offset factor is obtained vertices, which share faces, forming a more acute angle.
