The Medium Printer is no longer in the game and has been merged with the Small Fabricator

The Small Printer is a base module capable of printing larger, more expensive objects than the backpack printer. It costs 1 Compound to construct.

Cycling through the small printer module's available schematics will fill the input slots with the appropriate resources if they are attached to its base, either directly or via Medium Storage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is preferred to just print the 1-Seat via the printer, due to the fact that most modules printed by the vehicle bay are immovable, however a change was made so that the 1-Seat could be moved like all the other medium modules.
  • In the Basebuilding update, the internal storage was removed and it was made slower, along with it requiring more power.
  • In the future, Players will be able to print colored modules in the printer, by augmenting it with a Terrain Analyzer[1]. Unfortunately, it was removed from the game before this became possible and was replaced by the small fabricator.
