I have a problem with the export of my .dxf files.
I put the drawing centered on the x and y axis but when I export it and open it again it is not centered anymore. Only one axis remains centered.

I have tried everything but nothing works.

Has anyone encountered this problem before?

 

Thank you in advance for your help!

What exact options do you use? Screenshots? have you verified the export in other programs?

Here is a screenshot of the file export and one of the dxf created. One axis is correct but not both.

CAD designs exist "in space," and the formats are not paper-oriented until a given file is setup expressly for print output by associating a sheet size. The naked exchange format, .dxf, doesn't explicitly account for relative page or artboard coordinates (at least not in a way that makes sense in Illustrator). Reopening an Illustrator DXF export in Illustrator exposes this, as you've found.

Maybe you can explain your objectives. If the goal is to reopen in Illustrator, DXF export is a wrong move.

No it is to open it in autodesk inventor.
The problem is that I have to send centered .dxf to my clients. Whether it's in illustrator or inventor, the offset is the same.
I had no problems before.
