Where would you like to change the Surface Style?

Are these surfaces which are displayed Section Views or?

Assign different styles to each surface.

i can Assign different styles to each surface but when turning off elevations in the surface style it turns off at all the other surfaces

i need to control each surface individualy. for now they are all connected

How are you turning off the elevations? Are you using the layer off/freeze or the Visible property in the Style's display properties? Can you share your drawing here?

i send one file for example - one surface is the current base, one is the design of the new topography and the last one is the tin volume surface - is it for earthworks in the attachment you can see the area colored magneta which is the cut volume and the blue comes from another surface. i want to display only the magneta from the volume surface only

Surface1 & Surface4 are both using the same style. Changing Surface4 to a different style allows just the Magenta to display.
