Exporting to .IGES - files are corrupt

I am trying to export my project to send to micro molding and whenever I export to .IGES (the only format they will accept) the file opens in any other CAD software with missing faces or completely corrupt.  Please Help

    What happens when you try to import the IGES file back into Onshape? If the import is bad please open a ticket under help > feedback. Please be aware that IGES was "discontinued" in 1996 and replaced by STEP mostly because of poor translation quality and each system's interpretation of the "standard".
