The Assembler functions like an advanced version of the Deployer, allowing the player to specify a more complex arrangement of blocks to be placed.
The assembler does NOT need Blutricity in order to work. It can be controlled by bundled cable (directly conected to it) or by (insulated) redwire. It has two inventories, similar to the project table. In the upper one the user can compose the order of items to place or attach them to specific colors. When the assembler receives a redstone input, it will draw items from the lower inventory and place them in the world like a deployer.
The assembler is a handy tool and allows the user to make very complex automated machines, especially when controlled via a computer from the ComputerCraft mod. It serves well as a frame driven builder.
When controlled by a normal cable, the assembler places blocks from its inventory in a particular order, which can be set in its gui.
Bundled cable modeEdit
In the bundled cable mode, the player can attach items to specific colors and the assembler will place those items depending on what color of the redwire input it receives.
