The Smithy is used for crafting middle-class tools and armor. In order to use the Smithy, you first need to craft and place a  Refining Forge and smelt your  Metal into  Metal Ingot, unless you plan to make a Water Tank or Chitin Armor, the only 2 (6) items that are crafted in the smithy without needing metal.


The Smithy is used to craft a lot of items, including:

Full list of items crafted in Smithy

Everything that can be crafted in a Smithy can also be crafted in  Tek Replicator

Items can also be repaired in these creatures/saddles with the exception of Argentavis/Argentavis Saddle.


  • Taking an item out of the Smithy while it's being repaired will consume the resources but will not repair the item.
  • While, for some reason, the Smithy's back cannot be placed right next to a wall, this limitation can be circumvented by placing the Smithy first, and then placing the wall.
  • A very high quality item blueprint, such as a  Yutyrannus or  Rex saddle, can actually cost more materials than can actually fit in the smithy. The only way to use these blueprints is in a Tek Replicator, or a very high weight Argentavis with a saddle.
  • The Smithy is treated as a wooden structure and can not be damaged by hands, stone weapons, or non-explosive ranged attacks.
  • The following aggressive creatures can not damage the Smithy:
