thicken

Its been a longtime since I have used blender. I am trying to get the hang of it again.
I tried alot of other free modeling programs since first using blender.
Seems nothing compares to blender.
One thing I have used in other programs is the thicken tool, can blender do this or is there someway it can be done?

In the Scripts window under Mesh, “Solidify Selection”.
