mml files

I am using Mathematica to create 3D files that I now want to send to be machined. I thought that .dxf or stl files would be good enough but they are asking me for an IGES file. Apparantly when Mathematica exports a DXF it breaks it up into triangles which are then read as separate surfaces making the generation of a program for a CNC machine impossible as there are millions of triangles in the curved surfaces I need to machine. Mathematica can export as .mml (MathML). Is this helpful? What would you suggest?

Besty regards,

Alan Notis
