Taung Child Skull

Unless you’re working at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, you probably don’t have a Taung child skull available to examine in your own Anthro class. But since you’re at OSU, you can and print one here at the Digital Union! Download this model from Thingaverse or check out africanfossils.org where you can download models of over 40 prehistoric fossils, all for free.

Model of Taung Child Skull printed using white PLA filament.For prints like these, we encourage post-production to make the model truly reach its potential. In this instance is may be good to use small amounts of white clay to fill in the creases, sand it clean with 220 grade paper, and then top it all off with a thick, water-based, non toxic acrylic paint.
