FileMaker breaks the API binary response

I'm making an API call where the response is in binary format(datamax programming language) intended solely for my printer.

 

How can I save the response without ''breaking'' it? (filemaker seems to format it)
I've tried saving it as a variable, then exporting it to file from both Text and Container fields but my printer doesn't understand the file cause it gets modified by filemaker.

 

Same API call done in the Postman - 'Send and download' works fine. i get my binary file back and it prints just fine.

 

Comparison of both in the HEX editor, it's clearly altered

I need to get the response unaltered so I can send it to my printer. I have no idea what else I could try.
