XY coordinates export

Hi there!
I spent several days to find the solution so probably somebody here can help because I installed NanoCad as well...

My task is to get the XY coordinates from DXF or DWG drawing with the correct following of lines. Mainly I need to import it to the machine as tool library.
It should be something like

Before I used DraftSight so my story is that I didn't find any info how to extract coordinates from Draftsight. To import throught the drawing - not the problem, but to get... I found the separate program DX2XYZ which deals with only 2000 version files.
With this converting finally I have the coordinates with the all connection points mixed (check the attachment - left the real drawing, right is after the converting).

So I'm looking about NanoCad possibility just to get XY points with normal connection one by one. Is something possible? If not what do you recommend?

It's really strange - XY coordinates should be used widely but there is very poor information about the export and possibilities for every CAD program. Really simple problem but gettting me mad...
