I am trying to open SDF files which were exported from solidworks by gazebo exporter plug-in. I have saved the folder containing .sdf and .config files (and also meshes folder) to gazebo_models folder. They do show up in gazebo->insert panel, but when i select my robot it wouldn't be applied to the main screen of gazebo. what should i do to really have the robot on gazebo? PS: I am running Gazebo 7 on Ubuntu 14.04 (in case it matters)

there're probably some errors. Running `gazebo --verbose` then inserting your model may output some useful info in the console

@iche044 I'm not quite familiar with gazebo-verbose. Is this the "DRCSim" that says here: http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=drcsim_launchfiles&cat=drcsim ?

By default, gazebo doesn't print any error messages, so --verbose is just a flag to tell gazebo to be more verbose and output warning and error messages in case something goes wrong. This may help you debug when the model is not appearing
