The cloning machine is an object introduced in The Sims 4: Get to Work. This object is built with the Invention Constructor, and cannot be purchased without the use of cheats. It requires 2 common metals and 2 common crystals to be constructed.
The cloning machine can be used to duplicate most collectibles, which is useful for creating multiple copies of the ingredients required for making serums or other craftables.
There is a chance that the cloning process may fail, creating a "Rudimentary matter cube", described as "a basic building block of inert elements molded into an undeveloped form", to be produced instead of the duplicated collectible. The rudimentary matter cube is worth §1.
The cloning machine can also be upgraded to clone Sims. The clone will have the same physical appearance, clothing, traits and skills as the original Sim, but will not have their career or relationships. The newly cloned Sim will have the same last name as the Sim that they were cloned from, and a randomized first name. Sims that are clones of each other will have a special "Clone" relationship and will be able to perform special interactions, such as "Greet clone self" and "Play mirror game." A cloned Sims genealogy will place them as a sibling of the Sim that they were cloned of, and they will be otherwise indistinguishable from an actual sibling of the Sim. A cloned Sim will be given the same starting relationships with family members that any other family member would have (already having a developed relationship with siblings, parents and the like) interestingly enough, they will not have any starting relationship with the Sim that they were cloned from, despite being listed as their sibling.
