Mechanic's workshop

This article is about an older version of DF.

Mechanic is a category profession for dwarves that work with mechanisms. There is only one skill in this category, and any adult dwarf whose best skill is Mechanic will, not surprisingly, be known as a "Mechanic".

The mechanic skill is used for manufacturing mechanisms at a mechanic's workshop, placing and loading traps, and building and linking levers and pressure plates to objects such as bridges, floodgates, and other contraptions.

Higher levels of mechanic skill enable a dwarf to produce higher quality mechanisms and complete jobs more quickly.
