What is African Fossils?

African Fossils seeks to increase public knowledge about prehistory by harnessing modern technology.  Through digitizing otherwise inaccessible discoveries, African Fossils is dedicated to creating a growing repository of 3D models of significant fossils and artifacts, thus making them freely accessible to all. By allowing members to share their 3D printed creations, we hope to aid teachers, students and enthusiasts to exchange ideas and to be inspired to think about our tenuous place on the planet.

List of models for download

Is there a list somewhere of links to all the models that have scan data available for download? I am interested in getting 3D models of fossils for an educational software and don't want ot have to click into every item to check whether there is a 3d model download.
