    theres a whole mess of things that can cause oxygen generators not to produce hydrogen.

    -do they both have power? if a hydrogen tank doesn't have power it can't distribute it.
    [commonly used by players to turn off hydrogen thrusters at the source to save on fuel]

    -are the ports connected?
    get a hydrogen bottle and place it into the oxygen generator
    now access the hydrogen tank and see if you can collect the hydrogen bottle...if you can they are connected successfully.
    if you can't....they aren't or may not have power.

    -do you own both objects?
    a quick way of testing that is seeing can you access both the hydrogen tank and the oxygen generator

    -do you have any hydrogen thrusters that may be consuming the hydrogen as its made giving the appearance that the tank is actually empty

    if all else fails try to grind away both blocks and rebuilt them.


    and if you're looking for a place to put the screenshot try "imgur" click and drag the screenshot onto the site then copy and paste its url here.

    First I'll say something stupid that burned me once. If possible make sure your ship isn't attached to another grid by connector or landing gear before taking a blueprint.

    So here's the simplest but less elegant way to use blueprints. I'm assuming small grid.

    1) find a good space.
    2) build a new small grid landing gear.
    3) add a projector then 1-4 armor blocks vertically.
    3b) for grids that don't hover add. 1-5 blocks horizontally.
    4) add a reactor and fuel a small reactor.
    5) from the reactor access the projector I the control panel. Select the blueprint and play with the sliders until aligned properly to touch but not overlap what you just built.
    6) weld the projection by hand or wield ship.

    P.S.
    More elegant solutions include:
    * rotor instead of gear.
    * use pistons and a bunch of welders to "print" ships

    Can they change the name from oxygen generator into oxygen extractor or something along those lines because it does not generate oxygen it extracts oxygen and hydrogen from ice.
