Creating Contour Labels

I am trying to create contour lines from polylines for mineral geological mapping. Can I even do this or is there something more complex I have to do. I need someone to help me walk through the steps. Thank you

Choose to create a surface (Right click on surface in the prospector box) then choose > Definition > Contours and then choose your polylines. Hope that Helps.

I think I still am doing something wrong or I am not following you. You go to civil>surface>new surface. Is that correct. When I do that it just brings up a box with nothing in it. I know I must be missing a step somewhere. I am using ac3dmap. I could email you my contours if you don't mind help me. I have another question how can I find the area between these two contour lines (polylines). I appreciate any help.

"j" , I am beginning to believe that you are not using Civil3D, but Map 3D. You are in the wrong newsgroup. Please correct me if I am wrong.
