This factory layout will require the following:
- Totals' 10 Modular Frame Factory
- 480 Iron ore/min
- 480 Coal/min
You will also need resources for the following buildings:
- 11 Foundries
- 8 Constructors
- 4 Assemblers
This will be built on an eleven wide by fourteen deep grid and will consume upto a total of 244.4Mw
Part 1. Foundry Placement
To start this build, we’ll place a foundry at the start of the second row and in the center of the second column. Next, place five more foundries to the right of the first one, these will all be set to Steel Ingots at 100% clock speed. Afterwards, place another foundry at the start of the fifth row and in the center of the second column. Then, place an additional four foundries to the right of the first one, all of these foundries should be set to Steel Ingots as well as 100% clock speed, however, one of these should be set to 30 Steel Ingots/min.
This next step, we’ll connect the incoming coal to each of the foundries left input. To do this, place a splitter in front of each foundry's left input flowing to the right.
Next we’ll connect the incoming iron ore to each of the foundries right inputs. Do this by placing a splitter two steps away and two splitters high of each foundry's right input, these should be flowing right and connected with a conveyor lift.
Part 2. Constructor Placement
Now we can place the constructors that’ll be producing the Steel Beams for the Versatile Framework. Start by placing one constructor at the start of the eighth row and in the center of the first column. Next, place seven more constructors to the right of the first one, these should all be set to Steel Beams and 100% clock speed.
The next step is to begin merging the outputs of both rows of foundries. For the first row, place mergers in front of each of the outputs flowing to the right except for the one lying on the border of the eighth and ninth columns, this one should be facing forwards towards the top of the build. For the second row of foundries, place mergers in front of each of the outputs flowing to the left.
Once the foundries and merged we will create the manifold to the constructors. Here, we shall connect the outgoing Steel Ingots to the Steel Beam constructors. Start by placing splitters behind the constructors on the fifth through eighth columns flowing left into a merger facing forwards into the constructor on the fourth column. Then place a splitter behind the constructor on the first column, with the input facing the bottom of the build before placing two more splitters flowing to the right into the merger. Last for this step is to connect the outgoing Steel Ingots by connecting the first row to the right splitter and the second row to the left splitter.
Part 3. Assemblers
Before going further, we shall place the assemblers that will produce the 10 Versatile Framework/min. To position them correctly, place an assembler at the start of the eleventh row and in the center of the ninth column. Then place three more assemblers to the left, these four assemblers should be set to Versatile Framework and 100% clock speed.
Now we can merge the outputs of the constructors to go onto the assemblers. Do this by placing mergers flowing to the right in front of each constructor.
Next step is to place a splitter facing the top of the build two steps behind the right input, before placing more splitters flowing to the left aligned with each assembler's right input.
Now we can bring in the required 10 Modular Frames/min through the gray square to the right. If you haven't got this already prepped, check out Total's Modular Frame Super Efficient Build Guide. Start by placing splitters flowing to the left two steps away and to splitters high aligned with the left inputs before connecting them with conveyor lifts.
With this, you can now merge the produced Versatile Framework and send it to storage for now.
We’re very proud to have launched this website and hope you have found the guide both helpful and enjoyable. We look forward to updating the site weekly with new guides and layouts.
