Are you getting a text page?
If you are save as a .step or .igs file type

Then import or open with your software

Let me know if this helps

I see this as well with step or igs files
What you are seeing is the text from the isg or step file
in IE file-save as step or igs file type
This does work

What browser are you using? Some are more compatible with the site than others.

The browser I am useing is Internet Explorer 9
the operating system is windows 7 pro
my system is a quad core xeon with 16gb of ram

I get this not only on step files or igs, but i also get it with dwg's as well as .rar and .zip files as well as solidworks files, if it was a canstant thing, i might understand, but it is once in 7 to 20 tries as far as downloads go.

Hi car,

Are you still seeing this? For me, on Windows 7 in IE9, that file now goes straight to download. We fixed an issue with file header metadata that was causing the browser to attempt to open the file in the browser.

Yes, but I have been doing what was recommended, as in right click and save as. (Which I should not have to do.)
Will be monitoring to see if the issue has been fixed though.
