The trainer for your crafting skill (the one on the Fleet that you learnt it from) will have Schematics (the recipes) for crafting various items. You can purchase them from him/her.

I'm guessing here: while the Crafting Panel is open- change the drop down windows (magnifying glass icons -at the top) to "ALL" and "ALL" and "Alphabetical"
I am guessing you show no schematics in the list . I am also assuming that you do indeed have a companion available for crafting. Treek, HK-51 and any story companions will [should] work. To my knowledge the animals and droids that you can buy through the Cartel Market will not craft (if I am incorrect, please let me know)

What are you trying to craft? What happens when you try? Tell us something more specific than "it doesn't work".

Oh, and make sure you've gone to a Crew Skill Trade Vendor and bought the necessary "white" material ("white" because its inventory icon has a white frame).

They cannot craft, and they cannot go on crew skill missions either.

If you are trying to use a "temporary" companion (i.e. a storyline companion who has joined you, but where you are still going through their initial planetary story arc before they become an official companion of your character), you will find that the "Craft" button for the crafting skill is greyed out.

For example, if a Sith Inquisitor frees Khem Val, then travels to the fleet to pick up crafting/crew skills before completing the Korriban storyline, they will find that they can use Khem as a combat companion, but they cannot use them for crafting (I am not sure about whether they can be sent on missions/gathering quests, though).

Assuming that you do indeed have ALL of the materials required for your crafting (the two gatherable materials, plus the material from the Crew Skill Trade Vendor), that is the only reason I can think of why crafting specifically would be unavailable to you - other issues such as server/client lag could also give problems, but you would be seeing other issues such as vendors/doors/skills being unresponsive.
I am telling the truth, honestly! I am as honest as the day is long! Besides, I am a terrible liar, everyone can see when I am lying - my lips are moving.
Like most other subs, I have a Referral Link. Clicking it gets you some stuff, and me some stuff too.

You didn't say, so, do you have any companions? It's the companions that do the crafting, not you.

Do you in fact have all 3 components, 2 of each the Lost Artifice Fragment, Rubat Crystal and the Nylite Solution? The solution needs to be bought from the crafting vendor (those are the "white" mats) that Steve clarified above.
If you have a list of schematics it should be as easy as clicking on a companion pix, clicking on an item to make and finally clicking on the "craft" tab a bottom. Then sit back and wait. If you are still having issue, I'd contact support through making a ticket. Maybe they can see something wrong?
