G04 Dwell Code
« on: November 01, 2009, 01:06:34 AM »
I need to add a little extra time to my G code. I was trying to use G04 Dwell, G04 P3000 (I think this should give a 3 second dwell). When running this in Mach3, the dwell happens, but then doesn't resume the program. What did I do wrong?

The argument to G4 can be either milliseconds, or seconds, depending on a setting in Config->GeneralConfig.  Yours is obviously set to seconds.
