The Handbook is a guide containing all learned Assembly Station diagrams. Each diagram outlines the assembled item and its required assets in order to construct the item.
The Handbook consists of the menu and details tab. Unknown items are identified as a grey-silhouetted Recycler icon with a question mark in the middle.
The menu is a table of contents use to quickly navigate through different diagrams. The number on the bottom-right of each item indicates the page number. Each item is categorized under three colors: green for crafting station; purple for important items, usually required to progress through the story; and grey for generic items, such as decor items.
The details contain the diagram. An artwork of the diagram is attached. Each required material and its quantity is outlined, arrowing to the artwork; hovering over the material displays an info panel detailing on-hand quantity and sources. Crafted materials are noted with the required raw materials in order to create the crafted material.
The player can navigate through the Handbook by using the arrow icons on the left and right side of the page. The player can also use the page numbers on the bottom right of the page to quickly navigate to the first and last pages, or to the preceding and succeeding pages.
Icons may appear above the item page.

Diagrams can be obtained throughout the game, usually given during the mission that requires the assembled item or as rewards for completing a mission.
