How do you make an Induction Furnace work with ME


Recommended Posts

I cannot get this to work. I have and interface with two export buses and one import bus going to the Induction Furnace. I am trying to make hardened glass. I have tried every color combination on it and it will not load the materials. Sometimes when i cycle through the colors it will randomly make one. Please help!

Just got around to doing mine last night. I have a interface on top and set that to the input (blue for both slots) and one export bus on the back set to empty both slots (orange?). I pre-loaded the induction furnace with 1 obsidian and 1 pulverized lead in hopes that those will always stay there and make sure everything goes to the right slot. In the interface i have a pattern? for 2 pulverized obsidian and one pulverized lead to make 2 harddend glass. Been working great for me. If you are still having trouble check out your crafting monitor because the problem might be somewhere else (like redstone settings or power...)

nevermind i think i know now. i am assuming the items come in through the export cables, but if they come in through the interface thats my problem. Need to set the top spot to import both items. either way, i think that put me on the right path.

actually there is a slightly more elegant solution if you want to make them on demand

1) set an export bus on one side set to always export the more common element of the recipe (ie- powdered obsidian)

2) set up an interface on the top set to the other color than the export bus. within this place the recipe of your choice without the common ingrediant(ie- 1 lead = 1 hardened glass)

Voila, you can now craft it on demand and it won't waste any of the more expensive materials, it will however tie up one stack of the "common" ingredients. Personally have this arrangement for Hardened glass, and electrum as well as a Constant supply of invar so any ferrous ingots are smelt automatically(same setup with a basic export bus with the ferrous ingots.)

EDIT: Re read your first statment, you only need 1 export bus and the interface, the interface acts as an on demand bus and controller.
