Materials traders are intended to reduce the farming and reliance on the random number generator to find materials required for engineering.

You can identify systems that have a materials trader in the Galaxy map. From the map configuration view tab (the one first from the right), select the Services menu and select one of the three types of material traders. I used the one at Northrop Port in LHS 317.

Access the trader from the Contacts Menu in Starport Services. Pick which item you're looking for and the system will show you how many of whatever material you have in hand are required to trade for it.

It didn't work for me on the first attempt with a raw materials trader but popped at the second attempt with a manufacturered materials trader. I suspect it should work with any of the three types though and the system just didn't register the transaction.
