Gazebo 5 screen becomes dark for a while then back to normal, when selecting a customized object ( segment of Pavement) that has been transformed from Sketchup model to .dae via Blender 3D, and no object will be exported to the current environment. I think i have done something wrong with the SDF file of the model. My model directory in the gazebo models' directory has : 1- meshes folder that contains the .dae file. 2- materials folder that have three images in 'textures' folder coming from Blender exportation process of the .dae file. 3-model.config file 4- model .sdf file. here is the SDF file:

 <?xml version="1.0" ?>
<sdf version="1.4">
 <model name="Ground Road">
<link name="link">
  <collision name="collision">
        <scale>1.5 1.5 1.5</scale>
  <visual name="visual">
         <scale>1.5 1.5 1.5</scale>

</model> </sdf>

ps: I tried adding<scale>1.5 1.5 1.5</scale> and nothing changed .

any help?

Also, it might be a good idea to have a look at - If you have not read it before.
