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.
