Drawing dimensions offset from origin reduced when saving into AutoCAD.

I don't know if anyone else has encountered this problem. I'll have a dimensioned drawing in Solidworks which looks perfectly good. But when I save it as a dwg for a supplier, I've noticed the 'offset from origin' changes to a tiny fraction, such that it is impossible to tell what is geometry and what is a dimension line without zooming right in.

My current workaround is to change the offset from origin within AutoCAD for each of the several SLDDIMSTYLEs it brings in, but is there anything I can do in Solidowrks before I convert it into dwg format?
