- "Ah, yes, the duplicator, our most awaited item and the most expensive. It will print and collate materials at speeds our own presses cannot match and synthesize any paper or other material from the raw constituents it contains. This, from a device that fits into a few crates. Amazing!"
The Duplicator was a device that could recreate any object that was first digitized by a prototyper. It was developed during the final years of the Old Republic in order to meet the needs of the scientific community of the time. Early on during the New Order, duplicators were commonly found on the black market, where they were often used in counterfeiting schemes.
