Simplify surface view?

Hi everyone,

 

Can you tell me where is the option to modify the quality of a surface tham I'm displaying?

For instance if I zoom out, it looks with less polygons, if  I zoom in it looks with more polygons.

 

I've downloaded today some DEM Surfaces with an area of an entire city, and the civil 3d is simplifing automatically the surface... I gave a friend the same surface and on his civil 3d it works very bad without simplifing the surface at all.

 

I guess there has to be a switch somehere?

LEVEL OF DETAIL
I'm working in 2011 today, so I can't give screen shots, but this should get you going:

Hi,

 

if you look to the NewFeaturesWorkshop you will have seen that as a new option for Civil3D 2012, with the goal of a really better performance on screen.

The command therefor is _AECCLEVELOFDETAIL to switch it on or _AECCLEVELOFDETAILOFF to switch it off (>>>details<<<).

 

[EDIT] to late, have to get coffee to speed up :smileywink: [/EDIT]

No problem. It was messing with my head last week too.
