The Casting Basin is a Smeltery component that produces blocks when molten materials are poured into it. Similar to a Casting Table, molten material can be poured into it from a Seared Faucet attached to a Smeltery Drain. Unlike Cauldrons in Vanilla Minecraft, it is not possible to fall inside of a Casting Basin, as it uses the basic block hitbox.
Placement and Use
Place the Casting Basin under the Seared Faucet on the Smeltery Drain. When the metal has been liquefied, right-click the Faucet to pour the metal into the Casting Basin. After it cools, you will have a solid block of that metal. Also, if right-clicked with a block, the block will be placed inside the Basin. Some blocks can be made by casting liquid over a block inside the Basin.
The basin holds 9 ingots or 1296 mB of molten material. This is usually equivalent to 4.5 blocks of raw ore. You can attach a drain or other fluid-compatable transport blocks to it to remove liquids from the basin to another location.
