Powermill Surface triangle tolerance

I import Inventor parts in Powermill. Export to igs, import to Powermill. But the triangles are not so fine as i want.

If i import the same file in Autodesk Manufacturing Data Echange utility, i van change the the paramter Triangulationstoleranz to 0,001 and it looks fine. Is there a parameter in Powermill to set this paremeter to?

@hilling  Check and see what your Shading Tolerance is set to in your "Model Drawing Options".  If you tighten that tolerance up the model should look much better.  See the screen grab below.
