The Automatic Crafting Table is similar to a normal crafting table, but is capable of crafting items while the ingredients are supplied to it via pipes.
When you right click this you will see four main areas: At the top, the input (9x5); at the bottom, your inventory; at the left, a 3x3 recipe area; and a single slot at the right which is the output. Here's how to use it:
- Set the recipe in the recipe area (red). Nothing will appear in the output slot, that's normal.
- Put items into the input area by connecting tubes (or pipes) to any side. Regulators are not needed for this, as the table assigns each side its own row in the inventory.
- Place a filter or transposer above the crafting table facing down. It will eject the crafted items. If you want to stop this, apply a redstone signal to it.
- If the recipe produces a container item, such as buckets (when water buckets are used in the recipe), they will go to the last, red-shaded row of the input area. They can be extracted from the bottom. Note that if this is full, container items will be destroyed!
It is a step up from Automatic Crafting Table. The table consists of a chest and a crafting interface.
It allows automatic crafting of unstackable items, such as Handsaws.
Upgrading an Automatic Crafting Table:
The most common application for this is for an automated mass production/assembly line. A practical use in a survival world would be to make a lot of cheap, often cumbersome tools to make, like paper or Musket Stock and ammo. When connected with an Energy Condenser a good network for mass production is possible.
