Hello developers!

First, my system Information:

  • ROS: Melodic
  • Gazebo: 9.0
  • Ubuntu: 18.04

I'm using right now an OpenManipulator-PRO from ROBOTIS and I decided to insert a custom camera and gripper in this arm using a COLLADA type for the meshes that I created using Onshape.

Bellow you can see in Rviz how it looks like:

I am assuming you didn't give your camera a colour in Gazebo. That is why Gazebo has just decided to make it black.

in the URDF file for your camera add the following:

<gazebo reference="{name of your camera link}">
  <material value="Gazebo/White" />

That way your camera should also appear white in Gazebo.
