To start, create a furnace using the autolathe, along with a [Valve|pipe valve] and a [[Passive Vent|passive vent]] using the hydraulic pipe bender. Place it somewhere outside of your base with the arrows on the top and bottom pointing down. Complete the furnace using the tooltips. Finally, on the backside of the furnace, add a pipe and a valve to both the top port. The top port is your gas output port, which can be used to purge the furnace of waste gases after use. Continue the pipe to a wall or floor where you can place the passive vent. When set up correctly, you can open the top valve to off-gas the furnace to the passive vent, and safely vent the waste gas to the atmosphere. The bottom port allows for fuel intake in more advanced furnace setups, but we'll be manually fueling our furnace for now. In the future, it also might be worth collecting the off-gases into a [[Tank|tank]] for use in pressurizing your base. This is especially important on the Moon where no ambient atmosphere exists.

As listed in the stationpedia, you can manually fuel the furnace by placing a ratio of 1:2 [[Ice (Oxite)|oxite]] to [[Ice (Volatiles)]] into the furnace. Note that any form of ice will melt at and above 0 degrees Celcius, so it may be necessary to fuel your furnace at night to avoid the ice evaporating into the air. You can check the external temperature using the "External" section of your HUD in the bottom right. The amount of ice that you need is relatively small. Around 3 oxite and 6 volatiles will raise the temperature of the furnace to nearly 2000K, well above the temperature needed for steel. Place iron and coal into the furnace in a 3:1 ratio after the furnace has heated up to produce steel. Right now, 200g of steel (made with 3 stacks of iron and 1 stack of coal) will last you for quite a while. Once you have your steel, consider using steel frames and sheets instead of iron frames and sheets. Not only are they stronger, but they use less resources overall too.
