  • What Does A Chemistry Lab Make?

There are several crafting-type stations in Astroneer; some of them will create a new piece of equipment by combining resources, while others combine these resources into more complex versions. One of these crafting stations that you will come across is the Chemistry Lab. This is a lab that allows you to combine two resources to create a more complex one.

In this guide, you are going to learn how to make and use a Chemistry Lab. Additionally, you will see every resource that can be created from the Chemistry Lab. First, let's take a look at what you need to make this lab for the first time.

Printing A Chemistry Lab

A Chemistry Lab can be unlocked for 1,600 bytes and printed from the medium printer with the following materials.

  • 1x Ceramic
    • Made by smelting clay
  • 1x Tungsten
    • Made by smelting wolframite
      • this is a resource found in caves of Desolo and mountain biomes of Calidor
      • 1x Glass
        • Made by smelting quartz
        • With all these materials, you can print and place your new Chemistry Lab. Keep in mind that this lab requires ten U/s of power when active. This can be quite a lot if you are still using small generators; be sure to have a stronger power source, such as solar panels or wind turbines. Alternatively, ensure that a battery is nearby with the necessary amount of power.
