Hi guys!

I'm trying to import a 3D model of a Fanuc robot into Gazebo. I've already created the URDF using the sw_urdf_exporter plugin obtaining the following result. What's next? I succeed in importing a single part like in this tutorial Do I have to follow a similar procedure?

Thanks a lot!

You'll need to create a model.config file (manifest.xml is deprecated) as shown in this tutorial. From there, you need to put it somewhere gazebo can find it. Either set GAZEBO_MODEL_PATH, or just put it in ~/.gazebo/models (I think that one works by default).

If you have further issues comment on this answer or update your question.
