How to open a solidworks model in gazebo ?
As a person who is new to gazebo and even ubuntu I have some basic questions. I wanted to open a SOLIDWORKS created model in gazebo. According to information that I received from SOLIDWORKS sources, I downloaded SW2URDF add-in and used it to create a URDF file. Unfortunately I've got mixed information about opening a model in gazebo, I don't even know which format is the correct one: URDF, Collada (.dae), SDF (I don't know how to import my file as a SDF from SOLIDWORKS and don't know if its a possible thing or not).
After creating such file, what's the next step for opening my model? Among the tutorials from gazebosim.org I found this one useful but my problem is how should I use it. I tried to save an empty world file and use the syntax to add my file but I have a stupid problem which is how to open this world file after saving it?! And is this the right way to do such a thing?!
