Lathe IPW from non round part

Our machine shop just asked me about this...

 

User is programming a part, made from hex stock, to be turned on a lathe.  He's using a spun outline, so the IPW that is output is round, and not hex, which doesn't work for the next mill operations.

 

Any tips on how others do this?
