Hi there, I have two questions about Bentley Map PowerView and the Bentley SDK:
1) Can I use the SDK in Bentley Map PowerView?
2) In case I can use it, can I access to the incidents generated by Terrasolid using the Bentley SDK?
What we need is to access to the LIDAR data to generate custom reports with profile and plan views and at the same time to access to the data generated by Terrasolid: incidence data as position, distance between objects, etc ...

I think there is nothing like Bentley SDK. Bentley develops and offers plenty of different products, some including own SDK packages. So the question is what SDK do you need for Bentley Map PowerView development:

I am pretty sure you can. It's written in Bentley Map PowerView data sheet: Bentley Map PowerView is also designed with a remarkable degree of flexibility and configurability so that subject matter experts can customize it. Bentley Map has an extensive API supporting custom application development using C/C++, C# .NET and other modern programming languages.
Another question is what tools do you need to develop C / C++ application for Bentley Map PowerView. I have not tested it, but I think you need:
The best way to receive access to produt SDKs is to become a registered developer and a member of BDN program.

This question has to be answered by authors of Terrasolid. No Bentley programmer can know what 3rd party application does and what API it offers. I don't know Terrasolid in detail (just it exists ;-), but if it produces MicroStation elements, it should be possible to access the data. But if some dynamic process is implemented ... and I guess it is ... only Terrasolid code can access it and Terrasolid has to provide SDK to access the data.
I hope I didn't make a mistake and I assume somebody from Bentley geo team will be able to provide more detail information.
