Engineer's Workbench

TypeTile entity

The Engineer's Workbench is a block added by Immersive Engineering, used both for crafting special items and for modifying IE's unique tools. It takes up two blocks.


The Workbench's GUI is fairly simple. The left slot accepts either an Engineer's Blueprint (for crafting) or a modifiable IE tool. Without a blueprint or a tool to modify, the Workbench doesn't do anything.


With a blueprint in place, 6 slots appear in the center to accept shapeless crafting inputs, and a number of recipe outputs appear on the right. Each blueprint comes with its own set of recipes; for example, with the "Crafting Components" blueprint, the player can craft Iron Mechanical Components, Steel Mechanical Components, Vaccuum Tubes, and Circuit Boards.


Tool, weapon, and shield modifications can be installed or removed at the Engineer's Workbench. The player sets their upgradable tool in the left slot, then its available slots for modifications appear in the middle. An extra slot appears on the right for installing a Shader, an aesthetic choice.

On removing the upgradable tool, the newly added modifications stay with it.
