This is something I feel the DLC should have added it self, Im not sure if Bethesda is gonna expand upon it.
Basically I guess take the model of a builder, you drop a gun or something else into it you can break down for components, and out the other side comes the components it would normally give you, except automated. This I feel will give you a reason to pick up all those dead enemies weapons and cloths, so you can break them down efficiently and quickly, and turn them into something you need.
Im not entirely sure if this is possible, but im sure it would be a pretty popular mod, seeing as it makes the whole "factory line" thing that contraptions adds a little more perceivable.
Thank you for your time.
