I'm trying to select multiple edge loops by just doing one of them.

enter image description here

I want to know if there's a faster way of selection rather than doing it one by one. If there is a way, does the symmetry plays a role in terms of selection?

    $\begingroup$ In this particular case you could use "Select Non Manifold" operator Shift + Ctrl + Alt + M with only the option "Boundaries" ticked, though it will also select the outer boundary. Deselecting it is still less work than selecting four loops though. $\endgroup$ Jun 27 '16 at 1:39
  • $\begingroup$ There are actually more loops than is shown in the image. I used the circular region select tool to deselect the undesired area. Thank you. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You can alsoa use Alt + RightMouse button and Shift + Alt + RightMouse button by default to toggle select/deselect a whole loop $\endgroup$ Jun 27 '16 at 4:46
  • $\begingroup$ yes, just hold ctrl+alt and click on the edge loops. $\endgroup$ Jun 27 '16 at 6:20
  • $\begingroup$ you can select the edges that are part of a loop one by one and then do a 'edge loop select' $\endgroup$

There is another way,which is selection by similarity.

The loops you are trying to select are similar in length for instance.

Select the loop and press Shift + G , Length.

Select similar

You may want to decrease the threshold if your want a more precise result.
