wavy surface.PNGAs you can see from the attached image my surface is way through the in and out transition of my superelevation. the waves are dependent on frequency (ie if i change from 1m to 5m the waves get longer. Does anyone know what causes this and how to fix it?

Turn on your tin lines to see the problem.

Also, Smooth srface by polygon is good for stuff like that. But I agree with Bill, check the TIN line first you may have a blown target?

Thank you
