Data -
Smooth 3D  Smooth 3D surface. Aimed for better visualization 
Undo smooth 3D  Undo previous operation
Interpolate Increase density of the points x2 in both x and y direction. We recommend this function for low-density data (less than 256x256 points)
Affects both 2D and 3D plots
Filter Z Brings Z filter dialogue
Undo Undo last surface processing function

Fast render Toggle On/Off specially developed fast surface calculation algorithm
Recommended for 512x512 and higher size surfaces
Note Fast calculation is somewhat less accurate than in Normal render mode (Fast OFF)
