- "A useful heuristic for determining metacognition is to ask: Does this organism merely create tools? Or does it create tools which create new tools?"

Fabrication is, in its simplest form, merely construction or production of materials from the micro- to the macro-level. Once the basic colonial industrial base was in place, scientists and engineers began to devise new procedures in microfabrication, composite fabrication, semiconductor device fabrication and solids freeform fabrication adapted to the environment and resources of this planet. Additive manufacturing and 3D printing methods in use on Old Earth before the Seeding were advanced and perfected to the point where virtually anything could be fabricated if the appropriate raw materials were available. It was, unfortunately, the ownership of certain scarce raw materials for these procedures that led to many of the clashes between new-founded colonies on this world.
