    When I order a block that just needs basic/refined res from the fabricator the little antennas pop up and res move to the fabricator, refining on the way if needed. However if I order something that requires a component that I do not have in my silo, the little antennas pop up again (including on the component factory) but the component factory does not draw any res and each component and sub-component needs to be ordered manually. Is this right or am I missing something?

    The CF not drawing any resources to craft a component for a fabricator recipe is supposed to happen. However, in later updates (hopefully soon), they will be automated for crafting components for crafting recipes.

    Thanks. Nice to know that it isn't just me missing something obvious. :D

    I've found it does work sometimes, and somewhat erratically.

    It helps if you build on a loop.

    I have built it in a loop and it works well if I put the orders in manually.

    I read that it can cause issues if you have 2 fabricators in the same tech. Is this still an issue?

    Used to cause lag spikes.

    Seems to be fixed now.
