The element constructor is a block used in chemistry. It allows the construction of elements by adjusting the number of protons, electrons and neutrons.
An element constructor can be mined with a pickaxe. Mining without a pickaxe is very slow, but the element constructor will still drop as an item.

Using the element constructor opens up an interface with a large display and three adjustable sliders for protons, neutrons and electrons, as well as optional text inputs for each. By moving the sliders or typing in numbers into the text inputs, the large display will show the selected numbers of particles.
Constructed elements and isotopes can be removed from the output slot to the right of the element display. Additionally, elements from the inventory can be inserted into the output slot to view its numbers of protons, electrons and neutrons. There are 118 elements and 400 isotopes available for construction.
