Help with this assembly to DXF macro

Question asked by Brock Talley on Jul 25, 2019

Sorry in advance if this question has been beat to death. I actually got this macro from the forum and it works great I just would like to edit it to make it easier for what I do. I'll post the macro below this explanation. 

 

So it takes the assembly opens up the part and exports it as a DXF with bendlines which is exactly what I need but I would like the option of being able to select which folder it saves too I'd appreciate any help with this thank you in advance.
