Export line segment length

I need to export this Spiral to our Cadcam software for laser cutting. The Cadcam software and laser only accept lines and arcs, no polylines. The problem is, the exported line segments are very small, and causes the laser to have to address each line individually.

Does anyone know of a way to increase the line lengths for this Spiral when exported?

You could run the Convert command to convert to arcs before exporting. I used an angle tolerance of 1° in the attached, you could make it finer if you need. (that determines the maximum out-of-tangent value between adjoining arc segments)

Thank you.
