Gem Cutting Table
This building becomes available after you have learned the Gem Cutting skill.
Built in a Compound. Uses 17x17 cells.
Upgrade with Fine Balance
Adds a balance to a gem cutting table, measuring a gem's weight.
Cutting gems consists of trying to cut a semi-randomly shaped gem into a specific pattern. There is no room for error and the final product must be 100% accurate. The gem is cut by rotating the gem on its X,Y, or Z axis as needed, and cutting it with 1 of 3 blades on the table. The blades, and the type of cut they apply, are shown in the image below.
There are a number of hotkeys that move the gem. The mouse must be at the junction of the gem and the table for the hotkeys to work.
