incorrect outline on my drawn circle

I drew a circle by using Inventor , and converted to .stl file.
Using Ideamaker, I did slicing this date. But circle was incorrect.(not perfect)

I want to know what to do for slicing circle of smooth out line.

When you save a 3D file as STL format, the structures on model will be defined to be a few triangle surfaces.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STL_(file_format)

Which means the quantity of the triangle surfaces decides how the model finally becomes to. The more and smaller size triangles surfaces can reduce the curved surface more smooth. The quantity of the triangle surfaces should can be defines when transferring the 3D file to be STL format.
Attached two models for you reference.

As Vicky said, that's an issue exporting your file, not with IdeaMaker.
I am not familiarized with inventor, but in SolidWorks you can adjust your export settings for STL files, and increase the mesh accuracy and tolerances. Most probably Inventor have something similar.
