This article is about the current version of DF.

Furnace is an umbrella term for different workshops that are used to heat materials, and that often produce only intermediary--products, items that are then used to create something else for the final product.

Every furnace must be built from fire-safe materials and designed by a building designer. Jobs at a furnace generally require fuel or, in the case of magma furnaces, the heat from magma - if the latter, they do not use up any magma but merely must be placed over it. Magma furnaces must be placed with one of their edge tiles above magma with depth of 4 or more; this can be accomplished by digging a channel for the magma, or hanging it directly over an open magma source.

All furnaces are constructed using the Furnaces submenu (via b, e ).

See main articles for a full discussion, esp of magma versions.


Contents

[edit] Wood furnace

[edit] Smelter

[edit] Magma smelter

  • Shortcut: b, e, l

Magma versions use charcoal or coke for pig iron and steel production only. If the magma source fails, they cannot be used with fuel.

[edit] Glass furnace

  • Glass objects are final products

[edit] Magma glass furnace

  • Shortcut: b, e, a

Magma glass furnaces use only magma as heat source and require no additional fuel. They produce the same objects as a regular Glass Furnace.

[edit] Kiln

  • Feeds into: pearlash for higher quality glass production
  • Plaster powder is a final product used by healthcare professionals.
  • Ceramic/clay (earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain) items are final products.

[edit] Magma kiln

  • Shortcut: b, e, n

Functions just like a regular kiln, but uses magma instead of fuel.
