I would like to identify my surface with colors depending on its elevation. Is that possible to do?


You can use the command Surface > View Surface > View Color-Coded Elevations.  This command assigns colors to a set of displayed triangles based on their elevation. Thus, elevations ranging from 100 to 200 meters could be shown in red, while those ranging from 200 to 300 meters could be shown in blue. You can use this command to evaluate the changes in elevation in your model. A triangle that covers more than one elevation range is divided into closed figures, and each division contains the color for that range.
