Hi Pierre,
  I have not used the Digitize Wizard but took a look to try to help you out.
Is the picture I posted what you are referring to ?

I'm not quite sure how it is supposed to be but it DOES appear to be missing something.

Maybe someone else can help.

I have never used it either but was under the impression it put out a point cloud and you needed to use a programme to convert the point cloud to G Code. Maybe someone that has used it will be able to advise better.

Why do you need the XYZ in there? You can always load it into a spreadsheet and add them in pretty quickly. I wrote an autocad macro to create a mesh in AutoCAD from the point list. It's posted here somewhere.

Just by chance I stumbled across this, if you go to the Config menu then Ports and Pins then Mill Options you will see a box that if checked may put X Y and Z letters in for you, not tested it but certainly looks like thats what its for.
