The Research Table is an object added by Thaumcraft. It is used to complete Research to obtain Discoveries, which are used to unlock theories in the Thaumonomicon.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

The Research table is created by placing two tables next to each other and then right-clicking them with Scribing Tools.

The Research Table is one of the most important tools for any Thaumaturge. It is used to unlock all the hidden secrets of the universe and discover new ways of harnessing magic.

The interface for the Research Table can be very daunting at first, as it has a lot of slots and a lot of places to display things, and unfortunately none of them are very clearly indicated.

Thaumcraft 4.1[edit]

  • At the top are two slots for items. The one on the left is for scribing tools and the one on the right is for research notes.
  • Below the two slots is a large area that displays what aspects you have discovered and can use. Bright ones with numbers are ones you have, dull ones with no numbers are aspects that you have none of.
  • At the bottom are two circles and a rectangular space; the two circles are places for aspects that you can combine to make new ones, and the rectangle turns into a button when two aspects are clicked and set in the circles.
  • At the right is the main area used in research which displays a piece of Research when a Research Notes is placed in the appropriate slot. If there is a Research Notes in the slot, hexagons will be displayed with different aspects in some of them. You have to link them together with aspects that are either used to make that aspect or use that aspect to make them. Ex. If there is an Aer aspect in one of the hexagons, you can link anything that uses Aer to make a new aspect like Motus. You can also link the Motus with Bestia, and so on.


As there is no longer the need to research items with cursory or thorough to progress in your research, you now need to use a Thaumometer to analyze blocks and items to gain aspects for research. Using the Thaumometer is very important as you need to analyze things to get aspects to complete the research. It is recommended that you analyze anything and everything available to use in research.
