The biggest problem with magma-fuelled workshops is magma. This thing is extremely dangerous and you should be careful when you work with it. Here you can read our guide on how to build Magma Smelter.

Before you start to build your first Magma Forge, you will need to find a source of magma. Usually, they can be found underground. After that, you will need to make a special structure. Magma Forge requires you to use magma-safe materials and an anvil.

In order to build a Magma Forge, you will need to create a 9×9 platform with two holes filled with magma. You can see an example of such a structure in the image above this paragraph. The magma is delivered via the special tunnels dug below the platform. Their level of magma depth should be at least 4/7.

We recommend you be careful with such a structure and build at least a couple of magma-safe doors that could be controlled remotely. For this purpose, you will need to work with various mechanisms, and here you can read our guide on how to use levers. Good luck with your further adventures in Dwarf Fortress!
