I've added a custom, parametric pier to an OBM model of a bridge I'm working on, and I'm now trying to add reinforcing steel to it; however, when I boot up the ProConcrete workflow and try to add reinforcing steel to any of the columns/caps/drilled shafts, it gives me a tooltip telling me "Element not valid for tool." I've also attempted to add the reinforcement directly into the cell file and then add the custom pier to the main model; however, all of that reinforcement goes away when I've tried that.

Hi Nicholas, Thanks for posting your query over the Bentley Communities Forum.
We will test for the attached file and will revert shortly.

Hello Nicholas, We have tested the attachment and this is a *.cel file. Can you please confirm if you are adding the ProConcrete reinforcement to OpenBridge elements or *.cel files ? Regards, Alistair Lobo
I've been able to add reinforcement to a copy of the original .cel file, but when I added it to the bridge model, as a parametric cell, it didn't load in the reinforcement. When included with the bridge model, though, it won't let me add any reinforcement to the cell (though I can add steel to OBM-generated elements just fine).
