This table is used to cut rock chunks into stone blocks. Stonecutting is a crafting task, but gives no experience points. Each rock chunk will make 20 stone blocks, and the crafting skill level of the pawn does not influence the yield. Stonecutter's tables are considered dirty, and have a cleanliness of -5.
Work bills can be created at the stonecutter's table for each kind of rock chunk, as well as a special bill that will use any type of rock chunk available. In order to any of several types of stone block, it is easiest to create the universal work bill, and then select only the desired rock types from the list of allowed ingredients.
Chunks for the active work bills will be taken from anywhere on the entire map, even if they're not marked for hauling. This can be avoided by reducing the ingredient radius on the work bills. It is more efficient to create a dumping stockpile zone close to the work station, and adjust the ingredient radius accordingly. Especially when creating an infinite work bill, your pawns will eventually travel very far to gather the remaining rock chunks, unless the ingredient radius has been limited manually.
When setting up the work bills, keep in mind that the task count lists the amount of chunks that are cut, not the amount of stone blocks produced. So in order to produce 100 stone blocks, a bill of 5 work units has to be set up, each producing 20 stone blocks.
- 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.
