function x = Xsection(type)
switch type
case 1 % Benchmark
x = [ 0, 0;...
200, 0;...
200, 25;...
25, 25;...

In Matlab R2021a or later, you can use formattedDisplayText() to convert the matrix to a string. See this community highlight for further demos.
x = randi(20,5,2)
x = 5×2
12 20 12 16 9 6 3 1 9 17
fprintf('%s',formattedDisplayText(x))
12 20 12 16 9 6 3 1 9 17
Prior to Matlab R2021a,
fprintf('%s',evalc('disp(x)'))
12 20 12 16 9 6 3 1 9 17

I've updated my answer to include a solution that works prior to R2021a.
