Of all stone block materials, marble has the highest Beauty factor and stands alone as the sole stone to have a beauty bonus, and so is best suited to create art for your base. It is also a close second in terms of market value per unit of work, after sandstone, so is well suited to craft items for sale in bulk.
Least suitable for building defenses as it has the lowest health of all stone types.
- This section is transcluded from Stonecutting maximization.
Stonecutting speed is controlled by the cutting pawn's General Labor Speed stat, which is determined by a pawn's stats and capacities rather than any skills. Thus, maximization is based on improving that stat and removing process inefficiencies rather than grinding for experience.
General Labor Speed
Sight decreases general labor speed at values below 100%, but offers no benefit above 100%.
Care should be taken to avoid assigning stonecutting to pawns with damaged vision or manipulation or with traits such as Lazy unless they are otherwise unoccupied.
General Labor Speed is also increased by +50% Production specialists, as well as those under the Production specialist's Production Command. While being a specialist locks out many other work types and the quality increase is of no use for stonecutting, it can be useful to give to a dedicated stonecutter, to crafter pawns that will benefit and are temporarily seconded to stonecutting, or only temporarily to build up a stockpile of bricks before abandoning the role. A separate pawn as production specialist using the command and staying nearby will also improve rates and can be used independently or stack with the improvement from the cutter being a specialist.
- Sufficient haulers are present to bring chunks to them.
- The bill is set to drop the blocks on the ground.
If there are insufficient haulers, removing the shelves and instead positioning the cutting table next to the chunk stockpile is ideal.
Placing an armchair or other chair will not improve production rates, but will ensure that the pawn remains comfortable and happy while cutting. It's worth mentioning, with the Ideology DLC installed, slaves are ideal as stone cutters as the task doesn't raise any of the pawns skills. The -15% work speed from slaves is offset by a lack of need for recreation and adding a circadian half-cycler further increases efficiency by removing the need for sleep at the cost of -15% consciousness.
