Last Updated: Sep 30, 2016 09:10AM EDT
If you are using a 3M™ True Definition digital scanner, use this article on how to properly export your STL files, then import them into EasyRx.

Please note: Exporting STLs is only available if you have the "Advanced Data Plan" with your 3M scanner. Those with the "Standard Data Plan" may not be able to export STLs. For more information, please contact your scanner's support helpline. 

Export .STL file(s):
  1. Access the STL file in your office by logging into the 3M™ Connection Center web portal from your PC, tablet or smartphone using the login and password received from 3M. Access to Connection Center is obtained by contacting the Customer Care Center at 1-800-634-2249, option 3.
  2. Select the appropriate patient and case and click the STL file package to download.
  3. Then click the Download link.
  4. We suggest you rename the file(s) to include the patient's name and saving them on your computer where it's easily accessible.

Importing the STL file into EasyRx

There are two locations you can import STL files into EasyRx.
Option 1. The patient's record
 a. Click the [Patients] options in the main navigation bar
 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.
