To visualize collisional region

Is there a way to visualize collision (box, cylinder etc.) defined in SDF? If I'm not mistaken, we still need to give Gazebo visual and collision information separately (as found in another thread). So I'm debugging the collisional region by iterating the following steps many times, which is very cumbersome to me.

  1. Edit sdf
  2. Run Gazebo
  3. Run a robot to try hitting the defined but transparent collision region. If it fails to hit, go back to step 1.

User's operation environment: Gazebo 2.2, ROS Indigo on Ubuntu Trusty

Since I'm using ROS, I can use RViz if there's a feature for this. Also for development, upgrading Gazebo can be an option if only higher version software has a functionality.
