All the types of Micro Blocks from anticover to cover.

The Wiring Module adds the ability to craft Micro Blocks and covers. A Handsaw is required to craft Micro Blocks.  It is possible to craft Slabs, Panels and Covers, along with Strips and Corners of each size. Pillars, Posts, Columns and Hollow blocks may additionally be crafted without the use of a Handsaw.


Micro Blocks are recoverable by hand, though the tool specified for the block is faster. This comes in handy when making glass structures, as normal glass cannot be harvested, but glass Micro Blocks can.

If they are placed between two planned, uninsulated Red Alloy Wires, the wires will not connect because the Micro Blocks are in the way. The Micro Block must be placed before placing the wire, as otherwise the cross-connecting wire will block the space for the Micro Block. A Micro Block, however, will not prevent placement of Red Alloy Wire in the same block, only the connection through the Micro Block. Connections in all other directions are still possible.

Micro Block Sizes

These can be combined horizontally in any way to make a block of any eighth thickness.

1/8 - Cover
2/8 - Panel
3/8 - Triple Cover
4/8 - Slab
5/8 - Cover Slab
6/8 - Triple Panel
7/8 - Anticover
8/8 - Block

  • In SMP, if you face a micro block and try to place a Jacketed Wire on it, the micro block will become invisible. It will become visible again if you exit and log back in.
  • If you hold "Shift" while in creative and place a micro block, it will consume the micro block.
  • In a autocrafting table, the handsaw is consumed.
