    Default Shopbot pauses before drilling hole

    Hello all!

    I hope I'm posting this in the right section, this is my first time posting.

    I had a question about the Shopbot.

    I make crib boards and I use Aspire for making my tool paths. I have been running the file and when drilling the holes in the past the Shopbot runs smoothly from one hole to the next, but recently it has started pausing before every hole, then drills the hole.

    I am using the same file as I always have, but it just started pausing for a moment before every hole which makes me think there is a setting on in the Shopbot software that has changed, has this happened to anyone else? How do you adjust this?

    Thanks for any help!

    Can you post the SB file that you're cutting with when the issue happens?

    Been off SB3 for so long now that I can't remember, but it seems like there was a version somewhere along the line that did that. It doesn't seem likely, but there's a dwell setting in the hole drilling toolpath for Vectric products. That's intended for at the bottom of the hole though. Best to post your part file to take a look.
