The Medium Printer is a base module capable of printing larger, more expensive objects than the backpack printer. It costs 2 Copper to construct and consumes 4 bars of power (the entirety of its internal battery) to print one object. Like all modules, it is constructed on top of a level 2 platform.

Cycling through the 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.

  • Unlike the vehicle bay, any module printed via printer are movable, therefore it is preferred to just print the 1-Seat via the printer
  • In the future, Player will be able to print colored modules in the printer, by augmenting it with a Terrain Analyzer[1]
