# Coordinate Surface Panel

Use the Coordinate Surface panel to create surfaces of constant X, Y, or Z.

Since these surfaces will always be planar unless data is being displayed in RTZ Coordinate, the various shading options will have little effect on the surfaces. In fact, there is no option for faceted shading since, for a planar surface, it is identical to smooth shading. Except for the shading differences, noted above, coordinate surfaces have all of the same display options as iso-surfaces.
