I've inserted two models into Gazebo using the GUI. One is the steering cart that is already included with Gazebo, the other is a Velodyne sensor which I created following the tutorials. The Velodyne model has a single revolute joint connecting the base to the top. When I load the Velodyne, I can apply a force to the join to get it to spin however, when I fix it to the cart and save it as a single model, I can no longer see the revolute joint for the Velodyne listed. I can however see the fixed joint I created and also all the joints for the carts wheels.

Is there a proper way to create a new model out of several pre-existing models?

Do you have an example model file to reproduce the problem?

Apparently, the best way to join to models to create a new one is to create a new model file and include the two previous models. See link below for details.
