[Artifice] Can't raise my artifice level AT ALL!

I am a Jedi Guardian and have all the necessary crew skills to get whatever I need for Artifice. The problem is I can't level up my artifice at all. I have reverse engineered lightsabers and I have created new ones with new items but my artifice skill stays at 1/400 no matter what I do. Is there something wrong with this skill/craft? Has anyone else encountered this problem? Should I go to a skill trainer and reload this crafting skill? I am SO frustrated. I am a level 28, my Archeology and Treasure Hunting are both around 200 and no matter what I do Artifice stays at 1.

If anyone can help me, please do. Thank you in advance for any helpful advice.

I would file a bug report, it sounds like you've crafted and from level 1 artifice on everything should give you atleast some points. Another possibility is indeed untrain and retrain the crewskill.

If your main focus is leveling make sure you craft schematics that have an orange dot behind them. About every 10-20 levels you'll want to focus on a new schematic. These should award 2 points towards your Artifice level.

Thank you. : )

OK, I figured out part of it and I had started to get points - I'm at a level 60 but now no matter what I make it won't go above a 60. I didn't report anything yet and I'd like to ask if anyone else has experienced this same problem.

Have you gone back to the trainer to get new schematics?

Just like mobs, recipes go grey and stop giving you skill-ups. The dot next to it (on the left before the name) will tell you if you can level with it. If it is grey you won't get a skill-up. If it is green or yellow you will get one point and if it is orange you will get two points (not positive on yellow maybe sometimes they are two).

Edit: Btw the crafting skills (like artifice) that produce products not materials are the only ones you need to keep going back to trainer. Your other two skills give you new, higher missions automatically.

All crafting skills need green difficulty or better recipes to gain more levels.

Sure, but at level 1 - shouldn't any recipe be at least green? What could possibly be grayed out at 1/400?

There are two colors you need to pay attention to.
Usually it is something like this:

X "Name of enhancement" YY
X: Is the number of times you craft this item
YY: Level of the item

X, and YY both have colors but they mean different things.
If YY is greyed then it means that the item is more than 5 levels below your actual character level (for example a level 45 item would be greyed on my level 55 character) but it doesn't mean that you can't level your Artifice with it.
X is the important one, if X is greyed then it means that the item is below your crafting level and won't raise your crew skill with it.
For example right now on my level 40 alt with Artifice at 450 I have these two:
7 Acute Enhancement 50 (7 is greyed out but 50 is red)
5 Advanced Quick Savant Enhancement 55 (5 is orange and 55 is red)

So you need to be sure of that.

RE doesn't rise skill.
Any crafted item from your basic recipes (coming with training) has to rise it at least to 10 or 20.
If any of those not happen - Bug report.

Its funny you should mention that. Last night running Athis, I used my archeology to open the shortcut and received an achievement for hitting 400 in archeology. Seemed weird as a grey lvl 75 actuator shouldn't have given my a skill-up.

Wasn't until after the last boss that I remembered sending my ship bot on an archeology mission. Assume he finished right as I opened the passage.
