Digitec Diprotodon at Ecolinc

Ecolinc will be purchasing a 3D Printer in 2019 and its first mission is to print a life-size replica of the Diprotodon skull fossil found in Hind’s clay pit, Bacchus Marsh in 1973.

Students will be able to get up close and personal with the skull to appreciate its dimensions and characteristics thanks to Dion Parsons, expert IT technician and proprietor of The 3D Printer. Due to the size of the skull, it will be printed in a number of sections, then assembled. Leapfrog Bolt is bringing an important part of local palaeontological history to life.
