Creating Slicer DICOM data bundles is still quite complicated process.
Feature is now available from Data module: right-click, Export to DICOM, Export entire scene.
However, there is no way to choose an output directory, temporary files remain in the same directory as the generated SlicerDataBundle.dcm, it's not clear how to specify patient information, when the .dcm file is imported it is difficult to find that under which patient it shows up.

The feature is certainly difficult to use, but it is somewhat usable and this issue has been open for years, so it is definitely not a blocking issue.

My workaround for this one - forget about the existence of this feature ;-) Same applies to using Slicer MRML scene file.

This is certainly a niche feature, so it is perfectly fine not to use it. It is a quite limited alternative to proper DICOM export. We should probably not invest any time into improving it but spend the time with making proper DICOM export better. Which means that we just have to decide when to remove this. I'll ask for user feedback in the forum.
