Functions in one of two modes, single pattern mode or interface fed mode.
Single Pattern Mode
Uses a single Encoded Pattern (must be a crafting recipe) inserted into the assembler to craft an item without a crafting network.
This makes it useful in stand alone setups or in configurations where it can be fed by other mods and even chained together to to craft a final output. Items will be accepted from any side and exported into any available inventories.
Interface Fed Mode
Uses the Encoded Patterns (must be a crafting recipe) from attached ME Interface to craft items when they are requested by the Crafting CPU.
Note, this mode requires that the assembler not contain a Encoded Pattern; the pattern slot must be empty.
