    AutoMapper might be an option; I don;t think it auto generates the DTO but it will streamline the code for creating it from another class:

    Creating DTOs using AutoMapper:

    I know you just want DTOs, but an ORM like the Entity Framework can provide the creation of entities based on tables like you need:

    "Together with the Entity Framework runtime, the .NET Framework version 4 includes the EDM Generator (EdmGen.exe). This command prompt utility connects to a data source and generates model and mapping files based on a one-to-one mapping between entities and tables"
