Caption

Portion of a hominid skull created using a 3D printer. The cast is based on high resolution CT (computed tomography) scans of a real fossil skull. The printer works in a similar manner to a standard inkjet except it uses plaster powder and bonding agent to build the model layer by layer. The models allow researchers to examine the fossil in more detail without harming the original.
