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 is decreased by manipulation, sight and Global Work Speed values below 100%, and increased by manipulation and Global Work Speed above 100%. Manipulation can be improved with bionic or archotech arms, or with drugs that improve Manipulation or Consciousness (as it directly affects Manipulation) such as Go-juice or Wake-up. Global work speed is only improved by certain traits, such as Industrious, and the drug Wake-up, which stacks with the drug's manipulation improvement. 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. Additionally, like many other production tasks, lack of light or excessive temperatures will negatively affect rates and up to two tool cabinets will improve rates.
- 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.
