You can unlock item crafting by purchasing a schematic for the item's upgrade from one of the many vendors found around the game world.

In order to be able to craft items, you’re going to need to open your Inventory in the menu. From here, you can select the various items you want to craft and combine them, if you have enough Chemical Components and Mechanical Components. Before you can do this, though, you’re going to need to unlock the ability to craft items.

To unlock crafting you will need to find Schematics for each of the items that you want to craft. For example, if you want to be able to craft Health Infusions, then you’ll need to find at least one Health Infusion Schematic. These can often be found at the various vendors found around the wastelands, so make sure you’re stopping and checking out their wares when you drop into town for goods.
