Exporting SW to Mastercam: Parametric Splines

Hello,

 

I want to transfer some files from SW 2011 to Mastercam 6, but I continually run into problems with tool pathing. I have tried .sldprt and .iges. The only format that started to work was the .iges wireframe (option - parametric spline, entity type 112). However, it turned out that many of the lines weren't connected.

 

I can just import a 2d drawing and work from there, but it would be more efficient for us to be able to export the file directly from SW without modification. How can I do this?
