Q. What does the Autosculpt Machine do?
A. If you have a sculpture in your inventory, you can pay to make automatic copies of it.

Q. How much does it cost to autosculpt?
A. It depends on how many you make and what size sculpture you are copying. Once you are in the widget, you can see the total cost for creating the copies. Slide the number of copies up and down to see how the price changes - there is a discount for creating more copies at once.

Q. Can I copy someone else's sculpture?
A. It depends on the type of sculpture. You cannot copy sculpture copies, or sculptures that have been finalized as a Limited Run Original. See below for a list of the different sculpture types and details on what you can do with them.

Q. If I make a limited run can I re-open it for future copies?
A. No

The Autosculpt Machine - a futuristic photocopier for your sculptures.



The Autosculpt Machine allows players to create both rare (limited run) and mass produced (unlimited run) copies of their sculptures. In both cases, you get to keep the original item, but what you can do with it depends on the type of run that was selected. To make it easier to manage your sculptures, the icon has a small overlay in the bottom left corner, indicating the sculpture type.

Types of Sculptures

Existing Sculptures - Grey Box with 'L'

These are sculptures that were sold prior to the release on 10/2/2012. Players are not able to copy these sculptures and they will continue to work exactly the same as they used to. They are no longer available for purchase and have been replaced by the New Sculptures.

New Sculptures - Empty Grey Box

These are new sculptures as of the 10/2/2012 release. They are copyable and editable. If you sell or gift one of these sculptures to another player, they will be able to copy it and be credited for it as if it was their own.

Limited Run Original - Red Box with 'L'

When you finalize a sculpture as 'limited' or copy a sculpture as a 'limited run', that sculpture becomes a Limited Run Original. This sculpture is considered locked and signed by you. It cannot be edited or copied by you or anyone else if you choose to sell it.

Limited Run Copy - Purple Box with 'L'

When you copy a sculpture as a 'limited run' (small volume of copies), the selected number of copies are created and added to your inventory. Each of these is a Limited Run Copy. They cannot be edited or copied by you or anyone else if you choose to sell them. The copy number and the total number of copies are displayed in the info section.

Unlimited Run Original - Red Box with '∞'

When you finalize a sculpture as 'unlimited' or copy a sculpture as an 'unlimited run', that sculpture becomes an Unlimited Run Original. This sculpture is considered locked and signed by you. It cannot be edited by you or anyone else if you choose to sell or gift it, but it can be used to create Unlimited Run Copies by you or anyone else you sell or gift it to. Copies made from an Unlimited Run Original use the title and creator from that original sculpture, so you can sell or gift it and still be credited as the creator for any copies made by the buyer.

Unlimited Run Copy - Purple Box with '∞'

An Unlimited Run Copy is very similar to a Limited Run Copy, which is not editable or copyable. Instead of showing the copy number, it displays 'unlimited' in the info section.
