I'm curious if anyone knows of a digital impression scanning service where I can send the impressions and get the STL files. If so, what is the typical cost per case?
That is pretty niche, as that is not something most labs (big or small) provide (my opinion). May want to try a local lab. Maybe one you have a relationship with that has a scanner and ask if they could come up with a price. In terms of price, scanning impressions should not take more than 3-5 minutes, so the price should be reflective of that labor time. I'm thinking around $10-15 per impression (honestly should be less but labs want to make money).

It's worth considering investing into a scanner as the cost to ship "X" amount impression per month may add up in addition to the cost they charge per impression. They are expensive but try starting a thread about second market scanners. What worked for those who did it and the pitfalls to look out for. Good luck.
