NX9 Mill Slot on OD

Can anyone help how I can mill the slot on an OD?

The machine only has capability to use the X, Z & C axis so with the slot being 6mm then the cutter is size for size with the slot.

Required code:

G00 X50.0 Z-30.0 C0.0

X12.5

G01 X7.5

C-90.0

Z-10.0

X12.5

X50.0

 

Thanks

And (possibly) variable axis, tool axis "away from line" (CL of the part), swarf cutting
