    You need to generate the SQL (I'm old-fashioned and still call it DDL) script from Visual Studio or SQL Server Management Studio. PowerDesigner can ingest that using the Reverse Engineer function. If you can connect directly to the database, you can Reverse Engineer that way.

    The details on how to generate a DDL script from Visual Studio, I will leave to the reader to Google, because every new version of Visual Studio is different and the precise command will be hidden in different places.

    If it's some form of code or object model you want to import, perhaps Visual Studio can export the content as XMI, which can then be imported into an Object-Oriented model. Be careful with XMI versions :)
