Problems with DXF Export

This has burned me a couple of times and I'm wondering if there's a correct way to create parts or sketches to avoid the issue.  When I export a part as DXF - usually if it contains mirrored elements, the resulting sketch doesn't appear correctly in other tools (e.g. LaserWeb).  The kids on the robotics team designed this part - https://cad.onshape.com/documents/097b8a4e3ab7b4b4cbf3b6d6/v/5d728359b2c39a3dedebb63a/e/5b999b5f01d2fc950455dfca and we were going to cut it on the laser, but when I opened up the Bogie export, the right hole was in the wrong location, off the part.  I tried the same file in Inkscape (appeared correctly) and FreeCAD (same error).
