Question B Spline Curves for Export as IGES file

Hi folks,

I have a problem regarding my geometry. As you can see in the attached picture it's a vaneless volute for a turbocharger.

Unfortunately I'm not able to export this geometry as an IGES file because my geometry includes faceted data, which causes the export process to fail.

Link to ANSYS User Manual

Now my question is if it's possible to identify the problematic parts of my geometry (aka faceted curves and surfaces) and convert them into b splines? I found only one thread about this kind of problem but it didn't help me much.

Link to older thread

Regarding facet to b-spline conversion

Thanks for your help in advance!
