Fallout 4 – Create a Robot Workbench

The process for building each is pretty much the same so I figured why not include both. The main difference is knowing the base ID for each.

Note: Yes, you still need the Automatron DLC to build a Robot Workbench.

I know Automatron doesn’t take long to finish, but sometimes I just want to get to building something. So here’s how.

Creating Batch Files

Create four text files using Notepad.

Name them ‘WB‘, ‘WB2‘, ‘BM‘, and ‘BM2‘ (or anything you want that’s easy to remember). I named them WB for Workbench and BM for Building Materials.

Copy/paste the console commands and building materials to these files as listed below.

Place these files in your Fallout 4 game file folder located at:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout 4 (which includes your Fallout4.exe.)


  • Player.placeatme xx001f16 1

(Note: The ‘xx’ refers to the position of the DLCRobot.esm in your load order. Mine is 01 so this number is 01001f16.) (Your load order should be listed under plugin’s in your mod manager).

Adding a Robot Workbench while in Game

1) Enter the console by typing ‘~’ without quotes while in game.

Type the following command, then hit enter.

Bat WB

2) Exit then re-enter the console. click on the robot workbench to get it’s base ID. Leave the ID on the screen. Then you need to straighten and own it with the following command. Tapping the up arrow will display your last command used. Just add a ‘2’ to it and hit enter.

Bat WB2

3) To add building materials type

Bat BM

Then transfer all building materials to the workbench. You might not need 10,000 of all building materials so you can change it to whatever suits your needs (1000 may be plenty).

4) To add all robot mods type

Bat BM2

Then you’re all set to build your robot.

  • Or if you use the mod Workshop Rearranged, just turn on Automatron as if completed.
  • Hit ‘Esc’, then select Mod Config/Workshop Rearranged. Select Unlock Automatron Recipe Requirements (default=OFF) to turn them on.
  • Place your workbench then add the items in the above list from the Bat files (BM/BM2).

Adding a Workshop Anywhere

This works basically the same for adding a workbench in Fallout 4. Just replace the line in the file WB (Player.placeatme xx001f16 1) with (Player.placeatme c1aeb 1). Then save as WS (for workshop).

Then complete steps 1-3 using Bat WS instead of Bat WB. You can also skip step 3 and just use God Mode by typing ‘tgm‘ in the console, but by not using God Mode you can still level up while building. Also keep in mind without God Mode you’ll still need the perks to build some items.

Note: This is not a settlement, but will allow you to build anywhere in Fallout 4. To transfer building material into your new workshop you may need to fast travel somewhere and return.

That’s all there is to it. After it’s set up and you’ve done it a few times it’s a very quick process.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
