STEP File only saving as .txt.

Are you sure it's a .STEP file in the first place? A file wouldn't just magically change format upon download. Have you tried to change the file extension manually? 

Here's how you make file extensions visible in Windows 11: https://allthings.how/how-to-change-file-type-in-windows-11/

That should allow you to change it from .txt to .step – and if the file is really a .step file, it should then work as expected.

I've been facing the same issues from last few years. To your surprise whenever user downloads a .step file it is converted to .txt extension. (Fiverr should look into this matter)
I sometime deliver a .zip file to counter this issue. If you're a pro used you can change the extension in windows by editing the file but most of the buyers aren't aware of this.
