Components can be made at a relatively cheap cost using this bench, and steel can be obtained in large amounts from deep drills, making this bench great at providing a constant component supply.
It is best at mass producing advanced components for building the ship, as otherwise advanced components are hard to find in bulk from traders.
Bionics can be produced reliably using this bench, allowing you to quickly find replacements instead of calling traders which may or may not have them.
With a great demand for components in most colonies, component assembly is a great way to train colonists' crafting skill, if they are already decent at crafting. Good smiths provide quality weapons and armor for your colony and are valuable to any colony.
Prior to Beta 18, it costed 400 steel and 20 components to build, and requires a smith with crafting skill 10 to operate.
In Beta 18 its cost is reduced to 200 steel and 14 components, and the skill requirement is also reduced to 8. The recipe for advanced components have also been added.
In 1.0 it was renamed from the Component assembly bench to the Fabrication bench, and new recipes using it were added. It also required advanced components to craft.
