3D printing may help solve the mysterious death of the worlds most famous human ancestor, Lucy

3ders

million years ago, an adult female specimen of Australopithecus afarensis – which could be one of the ancestors of modern man – died in what is now Ethiopia. But according to anthropologists from the University of Texas, who 3D scanned and 3D printed parts of her skeleton, she died after falling from a tall tree. And you can test their hypothesis yourself by 3D printing their STL files of Lucy – which have just been shared with the public. 3D Printing Applications
