How To Get Steel in Astroneer. Learn how to make Steel, its uses and how to get all of the ingredients
Steel is a composite resource, which is made in the Chemistry Lab. It requires Carbon, Argon, & Iron
How to Get Steel in Astroneer Source
You cannot find steel, so you will have to make it using the following recipe
Recipe: x1 Carbon + x1 Argon + x1 Iron = x1 Steel
How do you create a Chemistry Lab?
Requires: Medium Printer Module | Recipe: Chemistry Lab = Tungsten + Glass + Ceramic
Tungsten: Check the Tungsten guide
Ceramic – Check out the Ceramic Guide
Glass – To find Quartz, use Quartz in the smelting oven
Quartz is available on all the Planets.
The Soil Centrifuge can produce 4 Quartz and two full Canisters Of Soil.
Trade Platform provides 2 Quartz per Scrap. Up to 8 total for 4 Scrap.
How do I get Carbon, Argon, and Iron?
Carbon – Use Organic in the Smelting Furnace to Find Organic
When using the Terrain Tool for most types of flora, organic can be found on all planets.
The Soil Centrifuge produces 8 Organic and two full canisters of Soil.
Trade Platform offers 2 organics for every scrap, and up to 8 total for each 4 scrap.
Argon can be found on these planets by using the Atmospheric condenser.
- Vesania : 50 ppu
- Glacio : 100 ppu
Iron: Use Hematite In the Smelting Furnace to Find Hematite
- Novus – Cave Layers
- Glacio: Ice Dunes and Mantle layers
Trade Platform provides 2 Hematite per 3 Scraps, or up to 4 total for 6 Scraps
