Can I get the toolpath to use arc moves instead of a polyline for a multi axis mill operation?

I have a multi axis mill operation but the statistics page is showing me only line moves. The linear moves are leaving the surface faceted. How can I get an arc move or achieve a finer/smoother tool path?

    Unfortunately arc moves are not possible in a multi-axis mill operation. To reduce the faceting you can reduce the machine deviation on the Finish tab of the operation. This will increase the number of linear moves to create the arc and hence it will lead to a smoother finish.
