Regardless of how you get the required materials, the Crafting skills enable creation of armors, weapons, implants and many other items and equipment.
Your companions will be able to craft items even in your absence as all you have to do is send the orders no matter where you are.
The player can specialize in only one Crafting skill, which will be shared by all of his companions. Furthermore, you can assign up to five companions to craft simultaneously.
All the crafting skills will benefit from Reverse Engineering, the process of disassembling items to get raw materials with a certain chance to discover schematics for an enhanced version of the dismantled item.
There are 6 Crew Skills within the Crafting Skills tree, as follows: Armormech
With Armormech you can create armor for your character from hard metals and electronic shielding. Characters and companions that have this skill will also be capable of reverse engineering their crafted armors and have a chance of discovering new ways to enhance armor creation. With Armormech you can craft Augments
and Armor for Non Force classes
using materials provided through Scavenging, Slicing
) and Underworld Trading
Through Armstech you will be able to craft Weapons
and Augments for Non Force Classes.
Just like for the Armormech profession, the Armstech skill also allows reverse engineering to be performed on crafted weapons and possibily find out new ways to improve their creation. Armstech uses resources mostly acquired through the Scavenging

and Underworld Trading
