I want to show the topography of the surface I created.
A long time ago I changed some definitions and succeeded - see the attached picture.
The problem is I don't remember what I did
I think last time I found a button somewhere to switch to 3D view/model and then
the 3D Faces were suddenly displayed as semi-solids.
Could somebody please help me?
Thanks a lot,

Solved! by antoniovinci. See the answer in context.
There are many ways to get that, for instance:
_-VIEW => _NEISO
_SHADEMODE and choose one of the types
Take a look at this blog post http://civilforautocad.blogspot.co.uk/2011/05/civi
First you have to have a Surface Style that displays triangles in the Model. From your image it looks like you'd want to set a Conceptual visual style. Then use 3D orbit or any other method of viewing it in 3D.
First you have to have a Surface Style that displays triangles in the Mode
you don't really need to do that.
Whatever the style, when you turn on a ISO view, Autocad shows itself in a TIN fashion, as you can see in this Map2006 screenshot:
Here is a graphic of what the other folks are describing. Granted my relief is not that pronounced
As I have said many times before the Map that comes with Civil isn't quite the same as the boxed standalone version of Map - MapLT?
I'm surprised that Civil needs to change the style...
It's an attempt to let the user set it up as they need. Sometimes you want to see the surface and sometimes you don't Civil styles are very different from Map or Autocad. Very powerful, very complicated.
