In Minecraft, a blast furnace is a block that is used to smelt items more quickly than a regular furnace. It is powered by coal or charcoal, and it can smelt items such as iron and gold ore into their respective ingots. In this article, we’ll look at how to make a blast furnace in Minecraft.
To make a Blast Furnace in Minecraft, you will need the following items:
- Iron blocks: Iron blocks are used to create the blast furnace structure. You will need six iron blocks to make a blast furnace.
- Iron ingots: Iron ingots are used to craft iron blocks. You will need six iron ingots to make the iron blocks needed for the blast furnace.
- Crafting table: A crafting table is used to craft items and blocks in Minecraft. You will need one crafting table to craft the iron blocks and the blast furnace.
To make a blast furnace, follow these steps:
- Gather iron ore: First, gather iron ore by mining it with a stone pickaxe or higher. You will need at least six iron ores to make the iron blocks and iron ingots needed for the blast furnace.
- Smelt the iron ore: Next, smelt the iron ore in a furnace to create iron ingots. To do this, place the iron ore in the top slot of the furnace and the fuel in the bottom slot. Wait for the smelting process to complete, and then collect the iron ingots from the output slot.
- Make iron blocks: To make iron blocks, place nine iron ingots in the crafting grid to create one iron block. Repeat this process until you have six iron blocks.
- Make the blast furnace: To make the blast furnace, place three iron blocks in the top row of the crafting grid, and three iron blocks in the middle row. Then, place an iron block in the center of the bottom row. This will create the blast furnace.
- Use the blast furnace: To use the blast furnace, place it on the ground and right-click it to open the interface. Then, place the items you want to smelt in the top slot and fuel in the bottom slot. The blast furnace will smelt the items faster than a regular furnace.
The blast furnace was added in Minecraft version 1.14, so it’s only available in version 1.14 or newer. With the blast furnace, you can smelt ores and materials at a faster rate, allowing you to create new items more quickly. With this guide, you should now know how to make a blast furnace in Minecraft.
