```Hi,

a) use TriangularSufacePlot[] from
<<DiscreteMath`ComputationalGeometry`

TriangularSurfacePlot[data3D]

b)

points = {{1, 1, 1}, {1, 2, 4}, {1, 4, 16}}
f1 = FindFit[points,
a + b*x^0 * y^1 + c*x^0 *y^2 + k*x^2 *y^0 +
l*x^2 * y^1,

{a, b, c, k, l}, { x, y}]

work as expected.

Regards

Jens
