VB.Net - Class Builder Utility

I'm sure this has probably been asked before, but, am I being foolish or does
the Class Builder utility not exist in VB.Net?

If so, why did MS Decide to remove this feature? I personally found it saved
a lot of time.

I know in .NET, some time is saved when you type "Public Property xxx as
xxx", in that it auto-types the Set and Get functions, but again, you still
have to fill in those procedures yourself, which you didn't have to do in
VB6. I just can't understand why the VB.Net Class Library project type has so
little functionality. It still takes longer to declare the public & private
properties than it did in VB6.

Please correct me if i'm wrong on any of these comments!

Well, the need has been felt by others, and add-ons have been invented:
