Use Contour - Surface Parameters, and Surface Point Selection to select the points you need, then form the triangles.
3. Once you have a triangulated model select Calculate Contours and you can then position the labels for the index contours interactively.
4. If you wish, you can display bands of color to represent Height Ranges.
