EDIT: Marked as solved, even though there’s no definitive answer on it yet.
Will update if a definitive answer arises.
As the title suggests, can i move molten stuff from a pipe to a crucible in exact amounts?
As a side question to this, is is possible to move molten stuff from a crucible into a pipe?
I want to make alloys. The only way i can see how to make them is by smelting two or more materials in a crucible. However, if i could pre-heat some stuff it would simplify the process. Especially as some alloy recipes require alloys as ingredients.
Of course this is all about batching and automation so it’s not really a problem if i just throw stuff in manually.
And on that similar vein, what would stop me from smelting say all my iron and storing it in tanks and then using molds to have a dispenser of whatever type i want? Which of course would be unrealistic at best.
