Not sure if this is already planned for the late game. Having some form of an "inserter" to take items from one machine and insert into another. From what I can tell so far they hope to achieve all of this with conveyors. If that's the goal, then ok I can live with it. However, I feel like it would be nice to be able to transfer objects with more than just conveyors. I think of the game Factorio if any of you have played it.

I believe this is intentional, to allow the game to be more accessible to new users to the whole factory genre.
I remeber Jace mentioning the accesibility part in the livestream at least.

Though, having an option to take additional outputs out of a machine, for example, an overclocked production machine such as screws, using something like a pipe inserter would be an interesting way to bring the max out of your factory.

Why Factorio? You mean inserter like in fortresscraft. They are cool. Yes (;

But it will not fit in the animations. The machines need a place where the stuff can be picked up and down.

I hope they don't make it too casual (boring).
