Hi there,
I'm new into industry I used to be a miner, and I have also a pvp character. I found industry interesting but I never tried it. I have some t1 blueprints, all copies, a lot of caracals. Should I try t2 manufacturing?? Where do I find these blueprints??

T2 manufacturing is done from invented BPCs (except in a few cases where a BPO exists. these are rare. ignore them)

to invent a T2 BPC, you need a T1 BPC of an appropriate sort (ME/TE is unimportant. Each invention job will knock a run off the T1 BPC) Like a Rifter BPC if you want to get a Jaguar BPC.

There is a percentage chance of success, based off the blueprint, and your skills. You require some data cores (dependent on the BPC) and you can use a decryptor to adjust the output if desired. Decryptors also adjust the chance of success.

This must be done in a location which supports invention. For ships, you'll get a 1 run BPC. modules and ammo are 10 run (normally). Base output ME/TE is 2/4, modified by the decryptor if used.

Use a blueprint calculator to work out if it's actually worth doing. (Mine, for example)

Woo! CSM XI!

Keep in mind that you need a fair few skills to invent and build T2.
To invent using those Caracal BPCs, you would need High Energy Physics, Caldari Encryption Methods and Caldari Starship Engineering, all trained to 1 minimum. Higher is preferable as it improves success chance.
To build the resulting Cerberus BPC, you'd need Industry trained to 5 and Advanced Medium Ship Construction, Mechanical Engineering and Caldari Starship Engineering trained to 1.

I refer you to this topic here:
I asked pretty much the same question, and got a bunch of useful replies. Go look at the eve-uni wiki too; they're a bunch of carebears only good for supplying minerals to the market, but their wiki is super handy.
