The Welder block is a massive, ship-sized version of the handheld Welder tool. It can be placed on both large and small ships, as well as stations.

UsageEdit

To use the Welder, either turn it on in the control panel or assign it to the toolbar. When it is turned on and in close proximity to an incomplete block, the Welder will add components to the construction stockpile and add progress to the block, exactly as a handheld Icon Item Welder Welder would.

For the Welder to work, the components needed for construction progress must either be in the target block's stockpile or in the Welder's inventory. If the Welder is connected to a conveyor system, the components can be pulled from there.

Range of effect is 3 small blocks on small ship and 4 small blocks on a large ship. Range is spherical and centered roughly on the welding tip.

Warning: the welder tip is lethal to players when active.

PowerEdit

The Welder requires 2 kW of power while running, regardless of the ship or station it is attached to. It uses the same power whether it has work to do or not.

InventoryEdit

The Welder has an inventory with a capacity of 3,375 L on small ships and 15,625 L on large ships. The inventory will only accept component items. If attached to a conveyor system the block will pull items that it needs for a job from the network.

It is important to note that many construction items can only be conveyed via large conveyor tubes and conveyor.

RecipeEdit

The Welder (Block) is constructible on both large and small ships, as well as stations.
