How to insert model from a path in local computer in gazebo? I have heard solutions like using an EXPORT statement. But what I require is that we must automatically add path from a plugin using some function. I have tried addURIpath function but it is not working and the model is being searched from the online database. Can anyone suggest a solution for this? Thank you.

You can add a model path with the following

#include <gazebo/common/SystemPaths.hh>

Hi, thanks for your reply. I have tried this, when I print the model paths my custom model path can be seen. However when I try to insert model using insertModelSDF which is in my current directory and which is supposed to import meshes from other directory, it is not working and again tries to search in the model database. Can you suggest a fix for that?
