Crafting is unlocked in a very specific way in Everspace 2. You must locate a Trading Outpost, there are a number of them scattered through the initial tutorial zones. They are displayed on your heads up display as you fly around each of the zones in space. Once you arrive at a Trading Outpost you need to purchase a specific item. Every Trading Outpost I have visited has at least one of these items but they also increase your carrying capacity, so they are a vital purchase for all players.
