Exporting grid directly to GMG file using script

Hi,
I have a large number of very large (2GB+) contour *.shp files that I need to turn into elevation grids.
When I generate the elevation grid and tile the output using the "Export Grids Directly to Global Mapper Grid Files" option, it works perfectly. If I don't select this option, GM (v18) crashes when it runs out of physical memory triangulating points (16GB isn't even enough).
 
Because I have so many of these files, I need to script it. But there is no option to 
"Export Grids Directly to Global Mapper Grid Files" for the GENERATE_ELEV_GRID script command.

Is there any workaround for this?

Thanks
