exporting facets

i'm moddeling something to 3d print so i need a stl file or silimar, however, when exporting an stl the size of the facets varies and the geometry is not smooth enough 3d print. when i go to 'show facet edges' with the correct visualisation settings however, the geometry is perfectly facetted.

can i somehow export the facets nx shows directly?

found a solution:
in FEM apply a 2d mesh with adjustment to curves to 100, adjust size to required detail (long export time for high detail). export as .jt, import in NX or other 3d software and export as stl.
