wait

Mapdl.wait(dtime='', **kwargs)

APDL Command: /WAIT

Causes a delay before the reading of the next command.

Parameters
dtime

Time delay (in seconds). Maximum time delay is 59 seconds.

Notes

You should consider using time.sleep(dtime)

The command following the /WAIT will not be processed until the specified wait time increment has elapsed. Useful when reading from a prepared input file to cause a pause, for example, after a display command so that the display can be reviewed for a period of time. Another “wait” feature is available via the *ASK command.

This command is valid in any processor.
