I'm working on 3D volumetric structure which is shonw in attached figure. My serious trouble is how can reinforce in this model when i'm trying to design by using "Provided Reinforcement of RC Elements" so the result is the pop-up window shows that "The element will not be included in the provided reinforcement modules.The material defined for this element is not concrete.". So, how could i solve this problem ?

The RC Design modules can only be used for surfaces (panels) and bar elements (beams/columns). Solids are not supported.

No, there is not. You should create the model using the shell model type instead.
