Is reverse engineering possible in Visual Studio .NET?

Is it possible to do reverse engineering with Visual Studio .NET to obtain architecture, functionality and data modeling from the code?
Absolutely. In fact, I've used it quite a big for reverse engineering. As far as getting architecture, functionality and data modeling, you can do that if you have infinite time and are a complete pro at x86 assembly language. You'd actually be better off using something like IDA Pro from DataRescue to start your reverse engineering work.
