I seem to remember the medical factory was able to produce Items. But recently I looked at the rules again and the production Icon is missing. Can medical items still be produced on the station or not anymore?
You should still be able to use medical factory stations to produce medical items. If that isn't working it should be reported as a bug. I don't see a production icon on the factory station or even on the factory, though, so I'm not sure if it's intended to be there, but it doesn't appear to be representative of its actual functionality. I don't remember the icon either way, but I don't look that closely. :p
