This tutorial will teach you how to make a basic machine layout that creates Diamonds for you! It will be using the IndustrialCraft method of making diamonds, not the EE3 way. This will be fully automated; the only thing that will need manual intervention is adding the ingredients. Just follow the images.
Step 1: BatBoxSolar Panels (or any EU-generating device in its proper conditions) and a BatBox pointing away from it.
Step 2: MaceratorMacerator and some Cables (Copper Cable works fine, but Glass Fibre Cable works best) connecting the BatBox and the Macerator up. It will also be easier if you add a Hopper to the top of the Macerator. That will be where your coal goes in.
Step 3: Autocrafting TableWooden Transport Pipe with BuildCraft Power coming to it (a Redstone Engine is great [make sure you give it a direct Redstone signal!]). Then connect a chest to the side of the Pipe and an Auto Workbench behind the Chest. Fill the Table with the resources like in the image so that it shows a Coal Ball in the output slot. The chest also needs a supply of Flint.
Step 4: CompressorCompressor (make sure you power that with the Cable too!).
Step 5: Second Autocrafting TableObsidian or Blocks of Iron or Brick Blocks. Fill the Table with this recipe (swap the Obsidian to Blocks of Iron or Bricks if you are using those):
Step 6: Second Compressor and Finishing Touches
And there you have it, an automated Diamond Factory (without expensive Matter Fabricators)!
