  • 1 chest.

  2. Now take iron ingots and put one under the chest in the craft grid. It will take the lower grate cell;
  3. Continuing to work with iron ingots, place one ingot on the right side of the chest, and the other from the left. This will cover two cells next to the chest;
  4. Finally, take two more iron ingots and place one in the first cell of the upper row, and the other in the third. On this manufacturing scheme for a conventional loading funnel is completed.

The use of funnels in Minecraft

Minecraft funnels have many applications, for example, to automate resource sorting, creating automatic farms and much more. They can be used with chests, chests, funnels, dispensers, barrels and droppers. However, they are not compatible with the chest chests. Double chests can be used, but it is important to note that the funnel attached to half of the double chest will fill or empty the entire chest.

If you want to automate the process of cooking potions, funnels can be used along with coasters for cooking. The upper funnel is used to load the ingredients, the side – to load the flask, and the lower funnel will take the flasks regardless of their contents. To fully automate the process of making potions, you can build a chain of red stone, which will activate the funnel after a certain time after loading the ingredients.

For more advanced automation of the funnel, you can attach to minecars with chests. Attaching the rails to the funnel, she will be able to unload the contents of the chest standing above it. To attach the output end of the funnel to a mini-telephone, aim at the rail block through which the mini-telephone will stop for downloading.

The funnels can also be connected together to create a chain of funnels, but this method does not allow objects to move up. So that objects do not move between funnels, both funnels must be turned off.

To use the funnel, just aim at the block to which you want to attach it and install it. If you want to attach the funnel to the interface block, hold the Shift key during its placement. If the block to which the funnel is attached will be destroyed, the funnel will remain in its place and attach to the block installed in its place.

Finally, the funnels can be turned off by charging them with a red stone. When the funnel is disabled, all the objects thrown into it will just lie on it.
