Is there a way to start crafting from pipette?

Don't know how to use a machine? Looking for efficient setups? Stuck in a mission?

Is there a way to start crafting from pipette?

So I know you can pick up something you have in your inventory by pressing Q on the same object in the world.
Is there also a way to do this, but instead of getting it from the inventory, you automatically start crafting?

Thanks

Drop all the items of that type that you have in your inventory beforehand... or use HotCraft !

Without an item in the inventory, it just makes that buzzing sound and nothing happens.

That's because you don't have the required ingredients !

You must have a mod installed because I just tested it in base 0.16 and it does NOT work.

My bad, it's also from HotCraft :
1.0.3 - also craft an item you selected with the pipette tool if you don't have any of that item in your inventory (thx to AsherMaximum)
(I thought it wasn't because it doesn't appear in the Controls screen...)
