[Armortech] Question about crafting when the selected item is red

I have noticed that If I craft an item that has a Orange , Yellow, or green indicator I get experience for the combine. If I craft an item that has a red indicator next to it I do not get any experience. The Red items are several levels higher than my current level but are within my crafting abilities or I would not have been able to purchase or memorize the schematic. I think we should get experience for crafting items that are red since we have the crafting ability to do so. What are my fellow players thoughts on this?

Unless I am mistaken, red means that you do not have sufficient skill level to even craft the item in question.

My toon is level 19 but my crafting skill is 300. So I can craft anything that requires up to a 300 skill level. The problem as I see it is the Orange skill can be to high a level of a piece of equipment yet I get experience when I craft it. I have the skill required to made the items in my craft window which are red. I often do make them and I can even reverse engineer them and get the prototype schematics but I do not get any skill ups which I think is wrong. It should not matter if I am not high enough of a level to wear it.

Just my thoughts,

It doesn't matter if you can wear the item or not. I just leveled artifice on an alt of mine that is only level 15. I went from 0-400 in 2 days just by crafting and RE'ing hilts. Obviously after the first couple of hilts I wouldn't have been able to wear (use) the hilt, but I still got +2 artifice level for each one crafted.

Could you please post a screenshot of an item that is red?

My cybertech is level 53 currently, but my cybertech panel shows items in red that I can't and haven't unlocked yet. When I try to craft it says I have an inefficient level for the item even though it is in my craft list. Also when I craft a green it says "No research available" when I clearly haven't advanced the item to a prototype yet. These "ghost" red items pop up on my list and now I can't make prototype items of the ones I can make.
