If the aim of using layers is to show/hide objects, which layers are primarily meant to be, like for surfaces in your case, you can pick multiple surface objects in the PathFinder and group them.


Further the display of groups can be turned on or off using the check box besides them in the PathFinder. This comes close enough to using layers.


Re: Surface layer

By "layer" do you mean an offset surface or some kind of skin over the top of an item? If so then Solid Edge can create offset surfaces easily and would be a good starting point.
