There may not be a specific variable for that - it may just be mom_pos and a motion.

I don't know, there may be a mom_evemt_type (or something).

 

What I'd do:

- find the thread about Moog_Show_Globals, download & add to your post in appropriate spot.  I might limit to first 5 motions or something.

- create a wire EDM without start point

- post, and save the info window listing from Moog_Show_Globals to a text file

- add thread hole point

- post, save the info window to a different text file

- compare the text files, see if any differences pop out

The other option is to turn on the review tool 

- post operation without thread hole

- add thread hole to op & post again

- compare the event listings

- note the review tool creates files you can use (instead of Moog_Show_Globals) so you can compare them.

 

Look for events that get added, maybe there's an event or vaiable you can use.

There is a MOM_thread_wire event. To figure out what should happen and when, you need to to check it with the review tool.
