Elevation Banding Surface Not Displaying Properly

Today I created a TIN Volume Surface. The volume surface seems to have a "resolution" issue if you will when displaying using elevation banding. In the attached screenshot note how the edges of the surface are "squared" or pixelated. Also, the blue lines are "hide" boundaries, and they have the same effect. I've created volume surfaces before with no issues until now. 


The volume surface compares 2 surfaces that were created from nothing but contours. Some of the contours can be seen in the attached image.

 

I've tried REDRAW and REGEN, the image looks the same in model space and paper space, I've tried closing AutoCAD and reopening the file. I deleted the volume surface and then created a new one... No luck. Any ideas? I'm sure there's just a setting somewhere that I'm missing.

 

For comparison, also attached is a screenshot a "normal" volume surface that I created before. This one has no "hide" boundaries, but the edges of the surface aren't "squared."

Perhaps you accidentally created a grid volume surface instead of a TIN volume.
