This article is a stub. It needs to be expanded.

A designated volume where smaller parts are assembled to bigger parts via robotic means.

Depending on scale there will be differet degrees of isolation from the environment that the building chamber provides.

In molecular preprocessing and mechanosynthesis in the first assembly level many building chambers may be connected in a chain with a common assembly line running through. This likely puts some limits on the finegrainedness of PPV vacuum compartmentalization.

At higher assembly levels building chambers might be singular boxes with one big port downstream the assembly process and up the assembly layers. Many tiny ports upstream the assembly process and down the assembly layers.
