The assembler is a powered machine which crafts items, it can be upgraded by inserting Acceleration Card into it; once upgraded it is very fast.
Functions in one of two modes, single pattern mode or automatic crafting mode.
Single Pattern Mode
Uses a single Crafting Pattern inserted into the assembler to craft an item without a crafting network.
This makes it useful in stand alone setups or in configurations where it can be fed by other mods and even chained together to to craft a final output. Items will be accepted from any side and exported into any available inventories.
Automatic Crafting Mode
Uses the Crafting Pattern from attached ME Pattern Provider to craft items when they are requested by the Crafting CPU.
NOTE: This mode requires that the assembler's pattern slot is empty.
