As shown in screenshot, I have the Alternate Recipe unlocked, and I have the provided resources for the Alternate Recipe, but yet I cannot craft the Heavy Modular Frame with "Alternate Recipe 1" ?  Why not ?

Alternate recipes can only be made in machines. For the heavy modular frame alt that would be the manufacturer.

Thanks!  Then it would be helpful to have some small wording (must be built in a factory)

I get your point how it would be nice when you open your Craft Bench that it would show that ALT-recipes can only be made in machines and not in the Craft Bench, however you'd get to a point where almost half the recipes you have would say "Can only be built in machines", and then you'd get a bunch of people complaining that: "If we can't build them, don't bother listing them."
