DimXpert with Mouldings

I am keen to take advantage of the dimxpert function to specify critical dimensions on the model and have these transfer across to the drawing.

Initial investigations gives me the impresion that it doesn't suit plastic mouldings that well with lots of details having 0.5 to 1.0 deg draft so there isn't parallel surfaces to dimension between, ie would dimension at the top or the bottom of the draft. Also with rads and fillets, dimensioning from intersecting points. Is there something I'm missing or is dimxeprt going to be a problem in these circumstances?
