Hi...I have been trying to import a biped model into gazebo from solidworks. For that I installed URDF exporter and created the .stl,.launch, .urdf files needed for it. When Im trying to import the urdf in gazebo, the model isn't correctly visible. Only thing I can see is various cuboids. This is not due to the large number of triangles in the mesh as I have tried it with a simple 2-link manipulator also. Im attaching the folder which got created while I exported it from solidworks. When it was exported, no sdf file was made..is it required? if yse where do i get that sdf file? Can you please look into this and tell me how to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Also is Rviz required at all for all this procedure?

hello, it looks like you didn't attach any files to the question... When Gazebo loads cuboids, it means it could not find the meshes. If that's the case, running Gazebo in verbose mode might give you a clue to where Gazebo is looking for the meshes. (run `gazebo --verbose`)
