Introduction

MicroStation® created by Bentley Systems is a tool for designing, analysing, and presenting 3D models.

In the context of the Regression Analysis tool, Regression Analysis is the process of analysing numerous data points to extract some geometry. For example, a set of points might be interpreted as a line, circle, rectangle or some other entity.

Numerous books and web sites will provide more enlightenment about Regression Analysis.

Regression Analysis Tool

The Regression Analysis tool is a prototype add-in for MicroStation V8i. It enables you to analyse a set of points in 2D or 3D, and extract from that set some useful geometry.

You can select points for analysis using one of MicroStation's well-known idioms: a selection set or a fence.

The tool works by first computing (in 3D) a plane that is a best-fit to the points. It projects the points to that plane for subsequent analysis. In 2D the points are, of course, already planar.

From a planar set of points, the tool attempts to calculate a best-fit geometry.

How much is Regression Analysis?

There is little demand in the MicroStation customer base for a Regression Analysis tool. The prototype discussed here has not been made available as an off-the-shelf product.
