2012-11-09 10:25:08 -0600 commented answer gazebo default directory and can not insert model

it looks like lugd1229 is using ros, in which case the export commands wouldn't work right?

2012-11-06 15:15:56 -0600 asked a question Insert multiple copies of the same model file?

Following the tutorial I spawn a model using option 3.

Is there a way to spawn multiple models that use the same model file using this method?

using GetModel->SetName before spawning a new model doesn't seem to work... the names never update in the gazebo gui and the previous model just disappears.

is this only for v1.2? I get errors when trying to insert by the last two methods in point 1. I followed the tutorial for v1.0. error = class gazebo::physics::World’ has no member named ‘InsertModelSDF’ and same thing for 'InsertModelString'

2012-10-23 10:39:33 -0600 commented question cannot load file in GAZEBO_RESOURCE_PATH

I remember having the same trouble... I want to say it had to do with the <export><gazebo gazebo _ media _ path=${prefix}"/></export> line in the manifest.xml file, but it has been too long now. I also still have trouble with plug-in paths and find myself just hard coding the path into my files.

2012-10-23 10:13:05 -0600 asked a question Always "waiting for service /gazebo/spawn_urdf_model"

Hi all,

Developed some plugins under 1.0 and after doing the update I can no longer spawn any of my custom models. I get the error:

Exception AttributeError: AttributeError("'_DummyThread' object has no attribute '_Thread__block'",) in <module 'threading' from '/usr/lib/python2.7/threading.pyc'> ignored
process[spawn_table-1]: started with pid [8670]
loading model xml from ros parameter
[INFO] [WallTime: 1351004304.009820] [0.000000] waiting for service /gazebo/spawn_urdf_model

I'm looking for some help tracking this error down, since the models worked before my update, I'm not sure where to start.

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: looks like my world plugin may be blocking this service, but not sure why. The plugin appears to be functioning properly, but once the plugin has loaded, I cannot spawn any new urdf models into the world.
