    Until the recent release I was happily using Telerik Data Access in a database first way:

    - Created the database schema in external DB designer
    - Generated a fluent model in Visual Studio
    - Whenever I did a database change I either re-ran the generation or updated models via visual designer depending on the magnitude of the change

    After the last release the templates I used for the generation are gone (as is the visual designer) and any attempt at Googling the solution takes me to a Telerik documentation page saying the info is deprecated.

    I'm working with large existing databases (100+ tables) and there's no way I'm coding the models by hand.
    What are the current options for auto generating the models?

    I am also in the same boat, except instead of 100 tables its about 1000.

    Right now I still have VS 2013 for my team's Fluent Model project, buts its not really a solution I like its more of a work around.

    Hello Vilém and George,

    Thank you for your feedback.
    We have already created a new feature request to create a code generating tool to create your fluent models based on your database schema. You are welcome to cast your support vote for the item.
    I cannot give you any time frame when we will be able to ship such tool, but I will make sure to notify you as soon as we have a public release.
