Drill Buddy Add-on (1.12+)

Mining can be time consuming task. With this add-on, you can craft this new tech that helps you to do so. Introducing the Drill buddy! it can help you mine at a certain depth and collects the blocks it mines for you.

Here’s the crafting recipes!

To spawn these new entities, follow these steps:

  • hold the item in your hand
  • sneak
  • interact with the item, long-press the middle of the screen if you’re on mobile/right-click on Win10
  • drag the preview entity where you want to spawn it
  • interact with the preview entity to spawn the entity in your hand

Nothing happening? Watch this tutorial to help you!


  • To activate these entities, use their appropriate ‘keys’

Limits & Abilities

The limits and abilities of these drill buddies are based on the quality of material you used to craft them

  • they all have the same inventory

They can’t mine in water, contact upon water despawns them!

They may despawn  mid-mining randomly because each drill buddy has their own durability, they’re based on the quality of material you used to craft them .

hole size of each drill:

  • wood = 1×1
  • stone = 3×3
  • iron = 5×5
  • gold = 7×7
  • diamond = 9×9

Fun Fact

The holes they drill are shaped like the real ones make, a happy little accident 🙂

You can also place them!

To place them, use the “Item ground ( Drill buddy )” and interact with any item from the add-on to display them.

    It seems to be that the recipes for the ‘drills’ themselves are uncraftable! I have no clue if this is fixable or not, help would be appreciated.

      Edit: Nevermind, I’ve fixed the problem. BTW, nice Add-on, works great.

    Amazing addon, keep it up !!!

  3. ThisJobYT says:

    I just realised that the Drill Buddies were meant to collect the resources while it’s drilling downwards! Why are the Drill Buddies not collecting anything when drilling? Fix this now! Also, the Drill Buddie’s durability? Yeah, the drill buddies were meant to only stop at a specific depth, not to just reach the specific depth and it’ll just despawn! Since when does a Drill Buddy stop at a specific depth and just.. despawn?! Update this addon or I won’t be playing with any other of your addons, dude!

  6. TJ says:

    The crafting recipes are found by clicking the title that says crafting recipes
    They must be crafted, even in creative
    Also question: why can i not craft it in survival mode? (I was able to in creative)
