Exporting mesh element with a high resolution from DGN to STL results in "choppy" or low resolution mesh regardless of the export settings. This can be seen when importing the STL back into the DGN.
Before exporting to STL:
After exporting to STL and importing back into a DGN:
1. Create a new file from a seed with appropriate units.
2. Reference the file containing the geometry
See: How to attach a reference with a 1:1 scale
3. Merge the reference to master
See: Merging Files
4. Move the geometry to the global origin
See: Export STL is not accurate
5. Export to STL
