The Combine Fabricator is an advanced 3D printer created by the Combine used to create weapon upgrades first featured in Half-Life: Alyx.

Overview[edit]

Fabricators use Resin as their building material, and what they manufacture depends on what the user selects for their weapon. To operate a fabricator, the user must first approach the machine. When approaching an unlocked fabricator, it will automatically open up and a camera will rise from the machine, presumably to save the user's identity to a database to track their current upgrades. A screen will appear from within, instructing the user to insert their weapon of choice into the cradle. After doing so, the screen will display a number of upgrade options available for that weapon, and the amount of Resin needed to manufacture them. If the user hovers their finger over an upgrade option, the details of that option will appear on the screen. After an upgrade has been selected, Resin deposit slots with slide out, and the user must insert the necessary amount of Resin for their desired upgrade. Afterward, the slots will retract, and the cradle will close and begin spinning while manufacturing the upgrade. A few seconds later the cradle will open and the user will be able to obtain their newly upgraded weapon. Locked fabricators can be hacked with a Multi-tool in order to use them, and not all weapons are compatible with them, such as the Gravity Gloves.
