Hello everyone,

I am using the W-M5P from the weka extension to get a model tree and be able to extract rules. However, I always get only one rule (shown in the screenshot) and also I don't get the graph of the tree at all unlike with the rapidminer regression tree or random forest.

It would be great if anyone could help here :)

Thank you in advance!

    Hello @islem_h

    I tried with the polynomial dataset in RapidMiner Samples. I can get multiple rules using W-M5P or W-M5Rules operators from weka extension. I can also generate the tree (Screenshots below). It mainly depends on your data. If you can provide your XML process and dataset we can try to replicate and see what is happening. Sample code used attached in this as well.
