Is there a way to program a CPC/quadratic surface using Diffsys?

In the past I've programmed it manually using Excel, but this time the surface is straight in one direction (like a cylinder) so I need Diffsys to calculate the tool path.

The part looks like this:

Use the X and Z points from Excel and import them as point cloud file into DIFFSYS MC2 or MC3, this would look like a 2D equation.
Alternatively one could write a ‘DLL’ containing this equation, which is also imported with MC2.   But you would need DIFFSYS v.4.66 or later
