Post subject:  How to get this toolpath

In the following presentation:

http://www.mmsonline.com/inmotion/makino1/

there is a video of a punch being machined. I believe that it is the second to last video in the presentation. Is there any way to get this type of toolpath with Visualmill? The closest that I can seem to get is the spiral machining, but when it gets to the point where it touches the end of the punch it retracts to the clearance plane and does a vertical entry on the other side. Any ideas?

Thanks
