Default isoparms to curves

Hello,

maybe a stupid question, but it would help me enormously... Doing a architectural design.

Suppose i have a mountain in 3D. This mountain would have horizontal isoparms. How can I make ring-surfaces of these horizontal isoparms?

I think I can ask my question differently: how do I make a isolated curve that I can work with, from a horizontal isoparm?

Tanx

Ken

If the isoprams there then and you want it to be a curve, select the isopram and then goto curves duplicate surface curves.

Other than that I'm a bit confused what your after?

Yes,

It's quite what I'm looking for: from isoparm to editable curve.
But can you please explain a bit more how to do this? I cannot find the curves duplicate surface curves. Where is this?

Thanks...
