DMX query editor is the only way to insert a DAX query in a Report if you use Report Editor in Visual Studio/SSDT. However, these reports cannot be edited in Report Builder.

Definitely MSFT should add DAX query designer with parameter support in report builder.

DAX queries do work with Report Builder 3.0, simply you have to select Data Source type as "OLE DB" not "MS SQL Server Analysis Services". And add provider information in conenction string for example:
Provider=MSOLAP.5;Data Source=MyServer\tabular;Initial Catalog=MyDB

We still do not have support for DAX in Report Builder. Anyone has any workaround?

Why Microsoft doing this??? When a new tabular mode is developed in ssas, everyone expect main reporting tool (Report builder not powerview) support it. Don't let this new method to be ignored by developers, just add a DAX query desiner in reportbulider 3!!!
