Cyborg Engineering kit, Basic circuit fabricator.

The idea : engineering module that allows cyborgs to print basic circuits such as APC, air controller, airlocks, fire alarm.

Why: Dragging a container everywhere so you can do minor repairs is an unnecessary and inelegant solution. In many cases items that require these circuits will never get replaced once damaged due to round time constraints or antagonist activity. So making it easier for eng borgs to make these repairs quickly and efficiently would benefit everyone.

Engineering borgs are already kind of engineer+. It seems silly to give them a buff

They can do it already, except they have to drag lockers around everywhere. Is it really a buff?

As already stated by General Do Nothing, engineering borgs are already effectively superior to engineers in many fields (infinite RCD, effectively infinite metal and glass, innate atmos and rad immunity, etc). They do not need more buffs. Additionally being able to outright print things on the fly, most likely at the mere cost of energy because of how cyborgs work which is a whole other can of worms, is an entirely different ability from having to go to an autolathe/circuit vendor, get a locker, then haul that locker out to where repairs are being done, as a side note there's nothing stopping an engi borg from just always having a circuit in their grasper. Maybe if this was basically just a personal case it'd be more possible but I doubt it'd be accepted to begin with due to the above mentioned reasons. Cyborgs are meant to have certain things about them weaker than their organic counterpart because there'd be no reason to not play a cyborg at that point.
