# [parser.cc:287] Error finding file

Hello, im very new to Gazebo, PLEASE HELP!!! i imported a .dae file, created an .sdf file using the guidline from http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=im... but i get the error

Error [parser.cc:287] Error finding file [/home/arl/model_editor_models/arc/arc.sdf].

i see it in the model tree when i launch gazebo but nothing happens when i click on the model.

Could you add the contents of your model.config file to the question? Also the structure of the model directory, you can do for example: sudo apt install tree; tree /home/arl/model_editor_models/arc/
