The item you need can be found in the Workshop Menu under 'Power > Manufacturing > Machinery > Builder'

The Builder requires 2 Circuitry, 3 Gear, 4 Rubber and 10 Steel and is what will be producing your items.

Once built it requires 8 Power to operate. This can be achieved with 3 Small Generators (remember to attach all the wires to the builder).

Once powered simply stand on the side of the Builder and press cn_X to transfer items. Transfer as many junk items as you can and the Builder will automatically produce new items.

I built 3 Builders to run simultaneously and the achievement took about 10 minutes to unlock. You can build as many Builders as you like to unlock this achievement quicker, but if you are running low on resources 1 Builder should take approximately 30-40 minutes.

As always you can make a save before attempting this achievement to reload from, minimising wasted resources. You can also scrap the items that the Builder makes and put them back in the Builder.
xBrushedRedxNice guide. Was the only one I wasn't sure to do. I amassed a ton of materials over my play time so I did the 3 builder thing as well. Hasn't popped yet but for some reason watching all these steel balls come out is oddly satisfying lol. Weird achievement.

HeraizenThanks, I added your tip to the post :)

The Real Mag00The easiest way to achieve this is make 4 builders that all connect into a square and then make them build "steel balls" (collect a bunch of steel from your settlements)

From here you will only lose 1 steel per ball made (100 steel total) and it will loop itself whilst you go and enjoy the view from a crafted couch listening to Diamond City Radio.

Enjoy guys

AradorYou should mention that you can hook up a terminal to the machine to change to different items if you run out of materials for the balls. I made a bunch of Teddy Bears, Toy Trucks, Toy Rockets and Steel Balls for my achievement. Also if the machine doesn't start working straight away after changing the item just switch off the power and turn it back on to get it going again.

OSSISSI just made ammo. Set it up first, then dumped all my junk into one while I went about to get the other two. Too easy...

ajnankivellJust to add, if you have enough materials and three machines you can sleep for 24 hours and it should build enough items within that time

We Ban AshI did the duplication glitch and got my steel to 15,000 and waited it out.

gbusAll my hoarding finally paid off. I had lvl4 science so I built a fusion reactor which produces 100 power and then built 12 builders around it. Picked up all my junk, around ~8500lbs and just dumped it in the 12 builders. The achievement popped in no time so I reloaded my save and continued on.

Kickerreed03My builder won't do anything. Can someone help me

Strykerz911@Kickerreed03 Are you powering it? It needs 8 power to turn on. You also need to actually add junk to it (transfer with the X button).

UraMallasI can't get anything to happen, either. All are powered. How do I tell it to produce something? It's just sitting there.

EDIT: Okay, you have to make a terminal under Power > Miscellaneous before you can pick what you want to build. Don't put anything in your builders before doing this.

1. Build Builders
2. Build Power Generators to power the builders
3. Build Terminal
4. Use the Terminal to pick what you want to build
5. Put materials needed for whatever you chose to build with the Terminal into the Builders

Kind of important stuff missing from these guides. Downvoted.

Faustus PHDI'm sorry for the downvote, but I don't really build much in this game and only UraMallas' comment got me going. Suggest adding terminal to the guide. Other than that it was perfect.

DesertFoxHunter10 builders, 1 fusion generator, 6000+ steal, and it took me 1 minute and 43 seconds from the time I connected the generator to the builders for the achievement to pop. Solid.

HeraizenYou don't need a terminal unless you want to specify something specific to build.

HolyHalfDeadI put 100 coffee cups in, and it did nothing.

Here is how I got the achievement:
1. Save the game
2. Put 500 steel in a single Builder
3. Wait 10 minutes and the achievement will pop
4. Load your save
