Gather the necessary materials

make a port of your Minecraft, it is necessary to start with the collection of all the materials useful for its construction. A port it consists of only one type of resource: for example, if you want to build one acacia wood door, you will need to use acacia wood planks, while for one iron door, you will need to get some iron ingots.

With regard to wooden doors, based on the variety of material used, such asacacia birch or l 'fir, just to give you some examples, you can create doors with a different frame. For this reason, depending on the project you are carrying out, the use of one material over another can be a fundamental choice on an aesthetic level.

Furthermore, wooden doors can be opened and closed without the need for any automated system, simply by interacting on them. This happens, however, differently for those in iron, to which an opening mechanism, even automated, must be applied, using simple or complex systems, which I will talk about in the next chapter.

As for building materials, in case you want to make one wooden door, you will need to collect the timber from the trees. This operation can also be done with bare hands, but I recommend the use of aax, in case you need to create many doors for your shelter. When you have obtained the wooden logs, place them in a bank gives lavoro or in the section Manufacturing dell 'Inventory of the avatar, to convert them to wooden boards.

for iron doorsinstead, you need to get the iron ingots, a resource that you can find as a treasure in the breakage scattered throughout the world of Minecraft. However, the fastest way to get del iron, is to collect it, through a pickaxe, interacting on the iron veins you find while digging underground in the world of Minecraft.

When you find one raw iron vein, you will have to interact on it with a pickaxe to extract i crude iron blocks. the latter must then be positioned inside a furnace, to convert them to iron ingots.

The materials listed above are the only ones you will need to make a door. As regards, however, the opening systems, such as buttons, mild, footboards o redstone circuits, you will need to gather additional resources.

Light e buttons are opening mechanisms that do not properly fall within the automation systems, object of this guide, as they require an interaction on them to open a door. For this reason I will focus on other mechanisms, which I will illustrate to you in the next lines.

make an automatic door on minecraft, serve the pressure platforms, which allow you to open a door when the avatar is on them. Another useful item could be the daylight sensor, which ensures that the doors remain open during the day, and then automatically close at night, so as not to allow dangerous nocturnal creatures to enter the shelter.

A pressure plate is created in a bank gives lavoro or in the section Manufacturing inventory, placing, on two slots, 2 unit di pietrisk or wooden boards. For the daylight sensorinstead, you will need to enter in a bank gives lavoro 3 glass units, 3 units of Quartz of the Nether e 3 wooden plates.

If the platform or the sensor has not been positioned close to the door, you need to create circuits of redstone. This material is obtained by interacting with a pickaxe on redstone blocks, which you find in the underground of Minecraft.

Now that you are aware of the resources you need for make a port of your Minecraft, it's time to start building it. First, make sure you have in your inventory 6 units of wooden boards of a specific variety of your choice. In case you want to make an iron door, you will need to get yourself 6 iron ingots.

Once this is done, place the resources indicated above on 6 of the slots available in the bank gives lavoro: you will have to insert them inside the slots of two adjacent columns. In case, you can help you through the project in the section Recipes, to automatically and correctly arrange inventory resources on the workbench.

If you have followed to the letter what I have indicated in the previous lines, in the slot on the right you will be shown the preview of the port resulting from processing. Now all you have to do is drag its icon to your inventory or a quick slot to equip it and place it in your shelter.

If you have built a iron door, as already mentioned in the previous chapter, you will not be able to open it with your bare hands and you will therefore have to use the opening mechanisms. You can also use the latter on wooden doors, to avoid interacting on them.

In this chapter I will show you some simple mechanisms that are based on automating the opening and closing of a door, mainly using the pressure platforms.

First, make a large opening in the wall of your shelter 2 blocks vertically, which will represent the door housing compartment. Once this is done, place the port previously created, making sure you do this from outside the building, in order to orient it in the right direction.

With that done, place one pressure plate in the block of land right in front of the port, so as to connect it without using the redstone circuits. Do this both inside and outside the door. By doing so, when you pass over the platform, the door will open and close automatically, without you needing to interact on it.

However, I recommend that you be careful, because an automatic door placed on the outer wall of a building can allow dangerous creatures to enter, should they approach the door, as they would interact on the pressure plate.

In that regard, you can apply one leads on the inner wall of the door, next to the latter. By interacting on the lever, the door will immediately open: at this point, interact on the door to close it.

By doing so, the door will remain locked and will no longer be able to open through the use of the footboards. Only by interacting again on the lever will the lock on the door be removed, allowing the correct functioning of the pressure plates.

Also, in case you want to create an automatic door that stays open during the day and closed during the night, you will need to use a daylight sensor. Its operation is simple: when exposed to direct light, it turns on, activating any mechanism connected to it; during the night, however, it remains off without generating any impulses.

The procedure to follow is to install the daylight sensor in any position outside, so as to always be in direct contact with the light of day, and connect it to the door by means of a connection redstone. You will simply have to draw a line of redstone between the sensor and the door, to connect them.

Other methods of making an automatic door in Minecraft

In addition to the systems I told you about in the previous chapter to open and close a door automatically in Minecraft, there are other more complex ones, which may require the replacement of the door with passages made up of blocks. One example is the construction of a secret Passage, which hides the entrance to a shelter.

In case you are interested in this topic, I suggest you read my guide on how to build a secret passage, in which I explained in detail how to make this project using the redstone and a system of pistons. You can use any mechanism for its activation, including pressure platforms or daylight sensor, which I told you about in the previous chapter.

Furthermore, if you would like more ideas for creating your own personal project for automating the opening and closing of a door, you can consult the many videos available on YouTube made by many Minecraft fans.

To do this, go to the YouTube website (or launch the relevant app on Android and iOS smartphones and tablets) and type the terms in the search bar at the top Minecraft automatic door or Minecraft automatic door, in English.
