Canisters are containers that hold various items.

Small Canister[edit | edit source]

Small Canisters are crafted in the Backpack in the early game and allows for easy manipulation of terrain. These are also used to fill Soil Centrifuges directly.

Medium Soil Canister[edit | edit source]

Medium Soil Canisters are crafted in the Small Printer and allows for greater storage of Soil, up to 16 times the amount a Small Canister can hold. Small Canisters can both deposit and withdraw soil from the Medium Soil Canister, allowing for some automation of filling a Soil Centrifuge. These also pair well with Pavers and Drills to quickly gather soil and pave pathways.

Medium Resource Canister[edit | edit source]

Medium Resource Canisters are crafted in the Small Printer and allows players to store resources, holding 32 nuggets (8 more nuggets than a Medium Storage Silo). They are useful when used with other Automation items.

Large Resource Canister[edit | edit source]

Large Resource Canisters are crafted in the Medium Printer and allows players to store the maximum amount of resources possible, at 400. This is 16 greater than a Large Storage Silo B holding 12 Medium Resource Canisters. When paired with other Automation items, they can allow players to craft a great amount of items without needing to interact with modules.

Other Canisters[edit | edit source]

Items such as Atmospheric Resources and Hydrazine come in their own versions of canisters, which disappear once the resource inside is used up.
