Inset PanelInset is a polygon creation tool that takes selected polygons and subdivides them to create new geometry within the original selection. The new polygons are scaled duplicates of the original. For example, selecting a single polygon on the side of a cube, and then firing inset, will create a smaller quad polygon framed within the original. Using negative values for inset will force the duplicated polygon to scale larger than the original.

Inset can be found on the Polygon tab of the MODO Tools toolbar under the Tools group > Inset.

The Inset value can be specified using the Inset numeric field, then use the Apply button to fire the command with those values.
