Derived Imported Surface Smoothness

When I use a derived imported surface, the surface looks really low quality and not smooth.

If I look at the imported surface in the part studio where it was imported, it looks good. 

Is there any way to control this?

    There are some tessellation quality setting in the appearance settings of each part/surface:

    Just right click on the surface and click "edit appearance"

    be aware that tessellation quality was probably reduced to keep your performance reasonable, so increasing tessellation quality may decrease interactive performance.
