    Default Using dwell in Mastercam

    I'm using Mastercam 2020 programming a Mazak FJV 25. I want to use dwell in a drill cycle. What value do I enter for a 2 second dwell? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Should be 2.0*, but not 100% sure. Why not put in a value and post just that operation and see what it outputs?

    *could be 2000 as well I would look up your manual and see if dwell output is in whole seconds or milliseconds to start and that should point you in the right direction

    Depends on how your particular post is set up. Could be "2", could be "2000".
