TypeItem

The Filters are items added by BuildCraft and can be included into Transport Pipes with the function to pass therethrough items with the same color, and to prevent items with other colors onward flow (see Usage). The clear Filter version lets through all item with no color. Thus it has a similar function as the Daizuli Transport Pipe with the different, that blocked items would not be forwarded directly in another direction, but are sent back.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Example of simple transport pipe system with Lenses and Filters to route items (Explanation in the text).

The Filters can be manually integrated into many Transport Pipes of BuildCraft. Possible places are displayed with the contours of the resulting prepared lens, if the player holds the lens in his hand and moves with the crosshair over the pipes. With a right-click the lense is placed in the indicated position.

The picture on the right shows an example of an item transport system with the ability to route items purposeful.

The Chests on the right contains items which should be transported to the chests on the left. But the items in the lower right chest should be transported in the upper left chest, and the items from the lower right to the upper left.

The items in the chest be pulled out wiht Wooden Transport Pipes and painted in the subsequent with Lenses. On the lower way all items are painted green and on the upper way all items are painted orange.

The Iron Transport Pipe in the lower T-junction serves to prevent item between the lower chests that are transported back and forth.

Now the items follow the pipe system to the left and reaches the T-junction with two Filters, above a green filter and below an orange filter. Thus all orange items are passed only lower path, while all the green item continue to flow only to the upper path.
