Make sure you join a friends game. You need to progress through the missions until your base is up and running. However, if you started an existing character you can just create the item you need. You must make a Refinery. This special piece of equipment allows you to process raw materials into usable products and substances.

Ignore the fuel and the output, that’s only if you’re actually using the refinery to, well, you know, refine. For this method on How To Trade Items In No Man’s Sky Next, we just need the input section. Simply navigate to the input section and add any item from your inventory. Then close the menu. Your friend can then open the refinery and take the items. Voila.

You can even do this with hard to get items such as Warp Cells and Chromatic Metal.
