Implementing pauses after each layer of 3D printing a model

In my project I'm trying to design a 3D model via Fusion 360 and convert it into a GCode or URScript using the Universal Robots postprocessor. The intention behind this is the additive manufacturing of the model using a robot from Universal Robots. Since I'm trying to manufacture the model using the WAAM welding method, the robot has to take a break after each shift due to the strong heat generated. My question now is how I can implement this pause in the Gcode or the URScript. Is it possible to add these breaks in the software itself? Manually implementing the breaks after each shift is not effective as there can be up to 150 layers. This would simply be too complicated.

Thanks in advance for your help:)
