Coordinates on exported DXF files

I have a circle in a sketch on an assembly. It's center x/y coordinate is 1.5" x 1.5". I create a drawing and on the drawing the center of the circle is still 1.5" x 1.5". I save the drawing as a DXF file and the center coordinate changes to something close but definitely different like 2.13465915" x 0.9841265". I know this because I have reloaded the DXF file and measured it using two different software packages.

 

The coordinate is used on the laser as a point to shrink the geometry around so it needs to be accurately known. Any ideas where this coordinate is getting hosed up?
