This article is about Fabricator in Subnautica. For the related article on the Below Zero Wiki, see Fabricator.

The Fabricator is an appliance that can be used to craft Food & Water, Equipment, Tools, and Deployables from Raw Materials, Basic Materials, Advanced Materials, and Electronics.

One Fabricator can be found in Lifepod 5; as is the Player's starting location, the use of this Fabricator is vital toward the player's progress and survival. Additional Fabricators can be constructed with the Habitat Builder and placed inside a Cyclops or a Seabase module.

The Vehicle Upgrade Console, Scanner Room, and Cyclops include special fabricators specific to those rooms, which only fabricate Seamoth/Prawn Suit upgrades, Scanner Room upgrades and Cyclops upgrades, respectively.

Usage Edit

When activated with LMB or  ,it will display an interface from which the player can choose an item to craft. If the player has the required materials to craft an item, the item will be in color and highlighted in blue; otherwise, the item will be greyed out and highlighted in grey. The player can cancel out of the interface with RMB or CyclopsExt1.  When the Fabricator finishes crafting an item, it will usually place it in the player's inventory. However, if the player moves away from the Fabricator during the crafting process, the newly crafted item will remain in the Fabricator, and the player must come back and manually pick it up. In this case, the player will receive a notification that their item is ready. The Fabricator cannot be used to craft items while there are still items in it that have not been picked up. By default, the Fabricator interface disappears while it is crafting an item and reappears when it is finished. The player can hold the key for sprinting (by default: Shift or​CyclopsExt1​) when they select an item to craft to leave the interface open during crafting.

The Fabricator requires Energy to work and will consume 5 Energy per item crafted from a Seabase or Cyclops. If there is not enough Energy, the Fabricator cannot be used. The Fabricator does not require energy to operate in Creative Mode.

Data Bank EntryEdit

Fabrication technology is the power to rearrange matter at the atomic level. It was the catalyst behind the great expansion, and remains the backbone of the modern world.

Fabricators come in all shapes and sizes, but the most common are small enough to be wall-mounted, and are used for everything from constructing everyday implements to cooking dinner. It is common today for households to keep a store of generic base materials on hand for any eventuality.

Trivia Edit

  • The Fabricator used to require a Computer Chip to create with the Habitat Builder. This was changed in an update shortly before release to requiring Gold and a Table Coral Sample instead.
  • Fabricators inside Destroyed Lifepods cannot be used, most likely due to the fact that either there is no power or they were destroyed.
