Hold your horses, because now it’s time to check out the Wait block.

The Wait block pauses program execution for a defined time. This block does not affect the robot’s current behavior. It merely pauses the program from continuing to execute the next commands until the defined time has expired.


Remember that the time entered inside the Wait block is in milliseconds. A millisecond is a thousandth of a second.
