I put boundary vectors around the components and used Select Vectors under Machining Limit Boundary.

That has worked a charm, I dont quite understand why we needed to zero it first to get clean edges but it is working so awesome :-)

It's to give the software a surface to blend into. Otherwise the edges of the spheres are just going off into what the software sees as empty space.
