Satisfactory Wiki

The Craft Bench is a manual crafting station, allowing to craft all unlocked components, except for:

The HUB has a Craft Bench built into it, while additional Craft Benches can be constructed elsewhere in the world using the build menu. In multiplayer, only one player can use a Craft Bench at a time, so building multiple is advised.


To craft a part, it has to be selected (or searched for) in the left side of the UI. If there are enough ingredients in the inventory, the Craft button turns yellow. The button can be pressed either by clicking on it Left, or held down automatically by tapping Space, which is useful for crafting a large amount of items.

After continuously crafting for a while, the hammer button will start glowing red, and boiling sounds can be heard. This (currently)[1] seems to have no effect on the game.

Recipes are unlocked by completing HUB Milestones and MAM Researches.

Early game crafting speed comparison[]

Below is the comparison of manual crafting speed vs machine crafting speed. This should give you some idea about which items should be prioritized for automation: items with low manual crafting speed should be automated first. 'Machine' refers to either the Constructor or the Smelter, which both operate at 4 MW.

Dual ingredient items are not included as they should be purchased from the AWESOME Shop during a speedrun. Coupons can be farmed by sinking the items looted from the Crash Sites.

Crafting consumable equipment[]

Crafting consumable equipment at Craft Bench takes 2x crafting clicks compared to Equipment Workshop. For example, crafting Iron Rebar requires two crafting clicks at Craft Bench but only needs one crafting click at the Equipment Workshop.
