export surface elevation values

is it possible to export elevations from a surface at a given interval?  i can easily export all the data i used to build the surface, but now I am wondering if its possible to export/extract the surface to a CSV or TXT file with a position and elevations, say, every 5 feet?

 

any ideas?

 

thanks, oa

 

Create points on the surface in a grid and export that.

works great, but, its asking for a point description for each point??

i can hold the enter button down, and watch points populate on my dwg, but thats clunky.

any ideas on how to invoke an auto-responce to the desciription key?
