How can I prevent my part files from showing splines and circles as faceted when I export a part to my cam prog as a .step file?

I am using Visualmill 6.0 and SW 2008 sp5. I tried bringing several file formats into Alibre and they all showed these facets as well, so it looks like some kind of setting in SW is causing these curved features to show up as faceted when exported.

This is a pain bc I am trying to machine a smooth spline in VM, but it keeps giving me these facets.
