The scaling behavior is certainly "a bit funky" by design. You will
notice that the dxf format has a rather specific label. It was created
for interoperation with robomaster software for desktop cutting plotters
like the wishblade. The scale factor is easy to find in the python
source you can easily change it to fit your needs.
