An elevator is a belt manlift[1] that can be installed to allow relatively quick vertical transport to dwarfs.

Size and range[ | ]

Elevator with a step

The elevator requires a 3x2 area for its machine room to be placed. The shaft will automatically extend downwards through any open space until the maximum length of the elevator is reached at 28 blocks.

Further interactions[ | ]

Objects such as ladders and bridges that do not normally impede movement can be placed in the path of the elevator shaft without any adverse consequences. However, while those objects can hold up placed scaffoldings and cannot prevent falling items from passing through them, the steps (or platforms) of the elevator do exactly the opposite: they can stop falling items, but cannot support placed scaffoldings (which will fall through them).

While water in bags can be laid on them, flowing water will obviously pass through the steps.

It's not possible to make dwarfs use an elevator when they are under direct control.
