Hi there,

I'am writing a plugin for Gazebo and my question is if is possible get a model link from other model? With none relationship between them, no child or parent. Some thing like this:

hydrophone_pos = this->link->GetWorldPose().Ign().Pos();

beacon_pos = this->beacon_link->GetWorldPose().Ign().Pos();

First get the world:

auto world = this->GetWorld()

Then from the world get the other model:

auto beaconModel = world->GetModel("name_of_beacon_model")

Then get the link:

auto beaconLink = beaconModel->GetLink("name_of_beacon_link")
