Stack objects along a dimension

I have a basic rectangular plane object that I want to stack along the Y axis. So that there would be a line of planes. What’s the correct way to do this? Thanks in advance.

You can either duplicate it once and then hit shift-r (for repeat) a couple of times.
Or you can use an array modifier.
Or you can use geo nodes.


thanks a lot for your help! i was builing a solar PV array and I ended up using the array modifier in x direction and then one more in y direction.

If you ever run into performance issues with the array modifier you can go for geo nodes. The array modifier treats arrayed geometry as unique geometry while geo nodes uses instances making it a gazillion times more perfomant.
