STL from STEP

One of my users got two files in STEP format from a mold shop to convert
to STLs for rapid prototype production. He brought one into Pro and saved
a copy as STL with no problem, but the second file did not give him the
STL option when in the "Save a Copy" dialogue box. Does anyone have any
idea as to why? Thanks.

The second file is likely not a solid. Please refer to the Knowledge Base article:

If this is the case, repair the imported geometry to make it solid and then you can export it as STL.
