Just got myself started with a basic Crusher>Sluice>Centrifuge>Shredder setup, and now I have a bunch of tiny dusts! Woohoo, but also, that’s a lot of dust. I am currently going to a crafting table to make them all into bigger piles, I know there’s gotta be a better way of doing this. What do people recommend?
dust funnels are your best bet for compacting dusts, but they’re sort of finicky to automate without a lot of faffing about. what i recommend is having a chest that leads into a dust funnel set to “tiny dusts” via a hopper that only outputs 8 1/72nd dusts at a time, and then have that lead into ANOTHER dust funnel that is set to normal dusts, via a hopper that is set to output only 9 at a time. that’s the way i do it, but it’s rather slow and doesn’t scale very well.
I’ll look into Dust Funnels, thanks!
Item barrels also convert dust sizes (put the desired size in first).
Yeah for the Dust Funnel you need a Hopper with a large Inventory to make it somewhat scalable, but for Item Barrels you can scale it easily, though it uses lots of space.
