Last Updated: Dec 15, 2016 11:33AM EST
If you are using an iTero digital scanner, use this article on how to properly export your STL files, then import them into EasyRx. 

Helpful hint: Did you know EasyRx now integrates with MyAlignTech to automatically attach your scans? Read more here on how to enable this integration.

Export .STL file(s):
  • Login to your MyAligntech account at
  • Click Orders on the top-left, then select Orders List.
  • Look under the [Completed] scans area. Find the blue ID number (also known as the iTero Case ID) and click on the ID belonging to the appropriate patient/scan.
  1. On the following page, click where it says "Export using OrthoCAD 3.5 or Higher"
  • Next, it will attempt to launch OrthoCAD software in order to open the scan(s) and allow you to export. Note: You may need to install/download orthoCAD for this to work properly.
  • Please allow the OrthoCAD software to install and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Next it will launch the OrthoCAD software and start opening your scan.
  • It will ask you for the Export Type, choose OPEN SHELL
  • For Data format, choose Two Files (arches oriented in occlusion)
  • For the Folder Name - We suggest changing this to the patient's last name, so you'll be able to easily identify the correct patient's file.
  • Press Export to begin the STL export process.
  • When the export is complete, a box should pop up telling you where the file downloaded. The default file path should be c:cadent/export/your folder name.

Uploading / Importing the STL file into EasyRx

There are two locations you can import STL files into EasyRx.
Option 1. The patient's record

 b. Either [Add a new patient] or select an existing patient that you would like to add their STL to by clicking [View]
 c. You may either drag and drop files, or, click the [files from your computer] to bring up your file explorer to locate the STL / Digital Models from the folder you exported them to earlier. 

 d. select the file(s) you need and click [open] which will bring them into the patient's file
 e. you are done!

Option 2. A new or existing (saved only) prescription 
 a. Login to your EasyRx account
 b. Click [Create Rx] or, for an existing Rx, find the patient's rx and click [edit]

c. If you selected [Create Rx], fill out the appropriate patient info then proceed to the Prescription Workspace
If you selected [Edit] on an existing Rx, you will land on the Prescription Workspace 
d. Select the [Uploads] tab at the sub-navigation bar shown below and click the [files from your computer] 

e. You may either drag and drop files, or, use your file explorer to locate the STL / Digital Models from the folder you exported them to earlier. 
f. Be sure to click [Save] after the files have uploaded, which would then exit you out of the Rx so you may come back at a later time to finish, click [Proceed to Submit] to finish filling out the rest of the Rx to submit to your lab

Here is what the attached files will look like when viewing the patient's record

Helpful Hint: Any files you upload to a patient's rx as also kept in the Patient's file for future reference! You may reference previously uploaded files for new Rx's without needing to upload the same models again, saving you time.
