The Metal Press is a 3x1x3 multi-block added by Immersive Engineering. It is used to create Plates and Rods. If IndustrialCraft 2 is installed, it can also create IndustrialCraft 2's Plates, including the Iridium Reinforced Plate.
Construction[edit | edit source]
The Metal Press is relatively simple to make. It uses:
Redstone Engineering Block
Heavy Engineering Block
The orientation of the Conveyor Belts is important; one should be facing into the Piston and one should be pointed the opposite way, away from the Piston. The orientation of Piston also matters; it should be facing down, as if it is to push the Redstone Engineering Block.
After it is fully arranged, right-click the left or right side of the Piston with an Engineer's Hammer to complete the multiblock.
Before 1.8[edit | edit source]
This information pertains to an older version of the mod.
The orientation of the Conveyor Belts are important; one should be facing into the Piston and one should be pointed the opposite way, away from the Piston. The orientation of Piston also matters; it should be facing down, as if it is to push a Steel Scaffolding.
After it is fully arranged, the player must the right-click the left or right side of the Piston with an Engineer's Hammer, then the multi-block is complete.
Usage[edit | edit source]
The Metal Press has no GUI. Redstone Flux (RF) is inputted through the top-most block of the multiblock (where the Heavy Engineering Block was). Items are inputted and outputted through the built-in Conveyor Belt. An extra Conveyor Belt should be built leading into the Metal Press for dropped items to properly go through the Press.
The Metal Press requires a Mold in order to function. Right-clicking (or as of version 0.7.4, throwing) a Metal Press with a Mold will attach the Mold to the Metal Press. The mold can be detached by shift right-clicking with an Engineer's Hammer.
The recipes done depends on the Mold being used. For more information, see the Mold article. Each use of the Metal Press consumes 2400 RF, at 20 RF/t.
