The Crusher is a 3x5x3 multi-block added by Immersive Engineering. It is used for crushing Ores into Grit (Dusts), which is more efficient than normal smelting.

Construction[edit | edit source]

The Crusher is relatively complicated to make. It uses 10 Steel Scaffoldings, 10 Light Engineering Blocks, 9 Hoppers, 8 Steel Fences, and 1 Redstone Engineering Block.

After it is fully arranged, the player must right-click the center of the front of the longer side (which should be a Steel Fence with a Hopper above it) with an Engineer's Hammer, then the multi-block is complete.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Crusher does not have a GUI. Redstone Flux (RF) is inputted through the top of the multi-block, through the block shown below.

When a mob or item is dropped into the center pit, the crushing process will start. After a few seconds, the crushed items will be dropped out of the front-bottom-center. If there is an inventory there (like a Chest), it will simply be placed into that inventory.

When a Mob is crushed, the Crusher will kill it, and output the corresponding drop/drops. If an Ore is thrown in, the Crusher will produce two of its corresponding Grit/Dust. If an Ingot/Gem is thrown in, it will produce just one of its corresponding Grit/Dust. If the Crusher tries to a crush an item that cannot be processed, it will be destroyed.

The speed that the Crusher processes one item is very close to the speed that a furnace processes one item when fueled with an External Heater. If processing ores that produce 2 grit, it will be necessary to have at least 2 furnaces in order to keep up with the output.

The multi-block's processes can be halted via Redstone through the "control panel", the front-rightmost-center block.
