Wrong DXF Orientation?

Hi guys,

 

I'm having this problem all the time when I save my sheetmetal parts as dxf's. As finish is a major issue on a CNC machine, i.e. face up or face down where one side gets scuffed and the other to be kept pristine, it is important to have the dxf the right way round. When I save as a dxf in the preview window there is no option to mirror the flat panel. So after saving I have to manually mirror (in AutoCAD) the panel to make sure it is setup correctly for CNC.

 

Is there a way around this or have I missed something.

 

Any help would be really be appreciated
