What is a good way to make a repeating wave without having to manually select every other face and drag it along an axis? I'm trying to make a very long wave and it would save me a lot of time on this project.

I'm trying to make something similar to the metal part of this image but a lot longer and more curved.

Add a curve object and create the basic shape.

enter image description here

In the geometry section of the curve, give it some extrusion to get the height you want.

Use an array modifier to get as many copies as you need.

Alternatively you can select 2 faces leaving one in between then pressing ctrl +shift+numpad .

E:This shortcut repeats the selection pattern.
