I am attempting to place rebar in the abutment back side stem wall. The red arrow in the picture is pointing to the shape used for the "RebarSet - Single. The green arrow is pointing to the concrete and the face where the shape and rebar should go. But the rebar mat comes in at a strange angle as shown by the purple ?. I have restarted the computer and application but continue to the the issue. The same procedure actually worked well on the front face of the abutment. But not on the back of the abutment. Any Ideas what could be going wrong. I have check all the settings and everything seems good except for the location of the rebar is coming in wrong. It is like the rebar is filling the shape selected but from the Front View of the MicroStation View. The shape being used is an associative shape but even if drop the association it still does the same thing.
Thanks for filing your request. I would be helpfull if you could upload your corresponding DGN for further Investigation. Many thanks.

s12j658_BR48_Abut2_012bcdata.dgn I uploaded the file. You the front of the abutment worked fine using he "RebarSet - Single" the back side seems to have an issue.

I have gone through your model and as far as I understood you want to do reinforcement in Stem wall. Please correct me if I am wrong
I have succeeded to place rebar at correct place. Hope you are looking for that only.
I am sending you the DGN and Video to go through this. Please find below the link to look into this.

OK I see you used the single rebar to apply the rebar to a graphical shape and it seemed to draw the rebar in the proper plane. Then you saved the rebar setup, then deleted the bars and reapplied the bars to the associative offset shape and they remained in the plane of the face. This is did not work for me. The bars placed on the graphical shape worked fine as did yours but when I then reapply the bars to the associative offset shape the bars are drawn in the incorrect plane. Did you change your ACS to make this work. There was a visible ACS that appear to lineup with the skewed wall, I did not see this edit made in the video. It a custom ACS require for concrete faces that are angled?
Attached is a video of what happens when I try what was shown in the video by Sandip Kar, something is not that same.
