Forney Plasma Pierce Times

Please provide the adjustments to this post to provide a delay for all pierces, not only the first
GRBL plasma no Z Thermal Dynamics Delay.scpost (3.14 KB)

That post does apply pierce times to all pierces.

What it does in addition is add extra time to the FIRST pierce.

If you open the post processor in a text editor you will see this very first line in the post:
firstPierceTime = 2 --this is an extra delay added to the first pierce as needed by some machines

You can set that value to whatever you want, even zero if you very first pierce does not need any extra time.
All pierces after that will have whatever pierce time is set in the tool you use.

I tried your post and my tool has a 0.5 second pierce time.
Here is the resulting gcode.
I have added bracketed comments at the first and second pierces, and put line spaces before the M3 torch fire, and after the G04 pierce, for clarity. Notice how only the first pierce is 2.5 seconds which is the normal 0.5 sec pierce time PLUS the additional 2 seconds.

What is the easiest way to adjust this pierce time?

If changing the parameter in the toolset, what Box do I change to increase the time between torch fire and machine movement?, pierce delay?

Yes. Pierce delay is the time from turning the torch on to starting movement.
