If you can, you should remove the lock and take it with you to the 
locksmith when you go to get your xx2247 key made.

1) It makes it convenient to test the newly-cut key, and/or resolve any 
uncertainties about it.

2) In SOME jusrisdictions, there are local regulations forbidding 
code-cutting of keys, without varying levels of PROOF that you own/have 
said lock.  That is nominally so that, since many locks have their 
code-name displayed, that somebody doesn't walk into a locksmith and get 
keys cut for other people's locks.

5 years ago, in the previous discussion of the XX2247, a couple of people 
measured their keys.  If you don't have a code-cutting locksmith handy, 
those discussions were just about all you would need to machine your own 
blank and cut it yourself.
