The Part Builder is one of the four beginning-stage blocks to be crafted. This is an in-world placeable block and opens the GUI on the right, when right-clicked.

How to use

Part Builder GUI

The Part Builder is used to turn materials into tool parts. A tool part pattern is placed in the left-hand side of the GUI (in one of the slots containing a square). The material to be used is then place next to the pattern. This will craft the tool part.

Some tool patterns only use half of a material (tool bindings, tool rods, etc.) and will give you the material's respective shard along with the part you are making.

Unfortunately, the Part Builder can only be used to make parts out of certain materials, typically the most basic ones. To make a part out of the other materials, you need to use a Smeltery.
