The fabrication bench is used by smiths to create components, advanced components as well as advanced weapons, power armor and bionic body parts.


The fabrication bench can be constructed once Fabrication has been researched. It requires Steel.png 200 Steel , Component.png 12 Component, Advanced component.png 2 Advanced component, 5,000 ticks (1.39 mins) of work, and a Construction skill of 6.



  1. Component 1 for Steel 12 and 5,000 ticks (1.39 mins) of work
  2. Advanced component 1 for Component 1 + Steel 20 + Plasteel 10 + Gold 3 and 10,000 ticks (2.78 mins) of work


Components can be made at a relatively cheap cost using this bench, and steel can be obtained in large amounts from deep drills and mineral deposits that can be scanned with the long-range mineral scanner , making this bench great at providing a constant component supply.

It is also good for producing advanced components for building the ship, as otherwise advanced components are hard to find in bulk from traders, and even when a large amount is found on a trader, they are very expensive.


It is needed to produce the charge rifle, charge lance and Power armor. Charge weapons don't spawn on enemies in the core game Content from Rimworld core game only, and only on the dangerous Empire faction Content added by the Royalty DLC with the Royalty DLC activated, so they are harder to come by than other weapons.


Bionics can be produced reliably using this bench, allowing you to quickly make replacements instead of calling traders which may or may not have them.

Skill training

With a great demand for components in most colonies, component assembly is a great way to train colonists' crafting skill, if they are already decent at crafting. Good smiths provide quality weapons and armor for your colony and are valuable to any colony.

Version history

  • 0.18.1722 - The fabrication bench cost was reduced from 400->200 steel and 20->14 components. The skill requirement is also reduced to 8 from 10. The recipe for advanced components has also been added.
  • 0.19.2009 - the the component assembly bench renamed to fabrication bench alongside a rework. New recipes using it were added. It also now requires advanced components to construct.
