The Molecular Scanner is a machine added by GregTech 6. It is used to scan the molecular data of materials. A full ingot-equivalent unit of material, in a basic form, is required for scanning. Unlike common Scanners, the Molecular Scanner can only use USB 3.0 sticks or higher, and the material will be consumed rather than ejected after scanning. A USB with material data can be used to replicate material in a Matter Replicator or to print a Material Dictionary in a Printer.

The Molecular Scanner is powered by quantum energy, or QU provided by a Quantum Energizer.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Scanning requires one of the following:

  • 9 Glass Tubes
  • 9 Nuggets
  • 9 Tiny Dusts
  • 9 Scrap
  • 4 Chunks
  • 4 Chipped Gems
  • 4 Small Dusts
  • 2 Flawed Gems
  • 1 Ingot
  • 1 Gem
  • 1 Dust

Any extra in the stack, or a larger form (like a Block), will be consumed as well. Fluids can also be scanned. Fluid Units could be 1000L, 250L, or 144L depending on the material.

It takes a very long time to process, often more than ten minutes.

Any material data can be used to print a Material Dictionary in the Printer, but only a specific list of chemicals and stable elements can be produced in the Matter Replicator from their material data.
