Craftbot is a crafting station in Scrap Mechanic.
The Craftbot is the primary crafting station in Survival Mode. It is used to craft many items.
Unlike the Mini Craftbot, the Craftbot has all crafting recipes available and is capable of being upgraded.
The Craftbot can be automated by using connected Large Chests. By having viable input and output chests, it can loop a sequence of crafting processes for as long as it has access to the required items. When the items run out, the sequence will terminate automatically. The Craftbot will also pull inventory out of chests connected to other chests with Vacuum Pipes. This allows the player to connect the output chest to an input chest, which can help with multi-stage crafting operations.
If you have trouble connecting Large Chests, aim for the connection port to limit the rotations.
When a Craftbot's output is linked to a Large Chest, crafted items will be automatically stored when completed. When a Craftbot's input is linked to a Large Chest, it will pull materials from the chest to craft items. This disables the ability for the Craftbot to recognize items in player inventories. Instead, it will only recognize items stored in Large Chests connected to it.
Upgrading the Craftbot gives it additional crafting slots, starting with only two. The first four upgrade levels cost 5 Component Kits each and unlocks 2 crafting slots per upgrade. Level 5 costs 20 Component Kits and reduces all crafting times by 50%.
- The Craftbot has a pegboard on its backside, which holds a level, a screwdriver, and a saw.
