How to make a point cloud of a 2D polygon?

Essentially, I am trying to overfit a grid of evenly-distributed points over a polygon. Then I then want to clip out the points that fall outside of said polygon. The goal here is to then export a table of the polygon's X/Y coordinates, so it can be read as a point cloud in other software.


One problem that I'm anticipating is that the coordinates probably need to be converted from long/lat or UTM to just a simple cartesian plane system with an origin (0,0).  But for now, I'm mostly concerned with just creating the point grid.


I attached a schematic to help explain what I'm going for here.


How can I go about doing this!?
