    Can I use a 3D Printer to copy my penis?

    homemade dildo vs 3d penis

    Yes, but you might not want to... yet. The concept sounds great; all that’s required on your part is to hold your erection long enough for a short video imaging session. Everything else is done on computer. Easy peasy, right? In reality, to pull off the above you’ll need an impressive camera that can scan in three dimensions and create a virtual model of any object, or CAD/CAM software with a compatible camera, the know-how to use it, and a very expensive 3D printer. The $1,000 consumer grade printers simply won’t cut it, as the build volume is typically too small to print anything other than a couple inches. You can hire a service where all the above is taken care of (email questions@empirelabs.com), but this requires traveling to a location away from home and allowing a technician take images of your erection. If you’re not a porn star or somewhat of an exhibitionist, this could get uncomfortable. The benefit to this method, though, is that we will take care of all the rest. The cost is around $250, and it’ll take just a day to see your result. What you’ll get is a plastic copy of your manhood, basically true to size and shape, including some detail but not the tiny veins and ridges and things that make your penis so unique. Constituent plastic filaments are still going to be visible in the final piece, meaning the printed object isn’t totally smooth. Its rough texture would not only be uncomfortable if used internally, but it’ll also have small crevices in it that could support bacterial growth. Additionally, if you're looking for a usable dildo, an object created from a 3D printer isn’t going to be body-safe. For that, we need to send your copy to our factory to have a mold created from it. That mold is then filled with silicone, left to cure, and sent back to you. The result is pretty good, but not as intricate as something you’d get from a direct mold and cast process (check out the image above).  Using a camera to catch every small detail is just not as precise as forming a mold directly from the actual body part. Our recommendation? Stick with the original Clone-A-Willy kit for now. We do offer 3D printing as an alternative, but we still recommend the more accurate mold and cast process.
