I just started 3D printing zand i have an issue with getting round prints. When i draw my prints in Solid Egde they appear round and nice. But when i transfer them over to Cura i get edges.

Any Suggestions?

The problem is with the file export process. I am a solidworks and NX user.  In both programs, there are settings to control the output of STL files when a model is 'saved-as'.  I suspect there are also such settings in solid edge.  Even when you save a mode with higher resolution, the model will be reduced to triangles, they will just be much smaller.  Look for these settings in your save dialogue.

In DesignSpark Mechanical there are settings for STL-quality: coarse, medium, fine, custom. Coarse gives the same as you show here. Fine is okay for 99% of prints. With "custom" even better results can be got, but then the amount of triangles and thus the file size of the STL go out of the roof. Search for a setting like "STL export options" or something similar.
