Hi everyone,

I face some trouble to place a boat on a step to study its motor and steering.

This occurs from both sides of this catamaran-like boat

Seems that the hull is inside the step, is it an issue with the physic engine (default ODE) or the mesh ?

I launch gazebo through a roslaunch file and a test world.

Here is the part of the URDF file describing the hull :

<link name="boat_link">
        <origin xyz="0 0 0" rpy="0 0 0"/>
        <mass value="38.718"/>
        <inertia ixx="16.283" ixy="0.008" ixz="0.458" iyy="19.728" iyz="0.0" izz="33.013"/>

        <origin xyz="0 0 0" rpy="0 0 0"/>
            <mesh filename="package://aquanaute_description/models/meshes/Assambly_aquanaute.stl"/>

        <origin rpy="0 0 0" xyz="0 0 0"/>
            <mesh filename="package://aquanaute_description/models/meshes/Assambly_aquanaute.stl"/>
        <material name="gray"/>

hello, what is the value of the min_depth and max_vel parameter ? Explanation about those parameters are here, "constraints parameters" 3 & 4. Are you sure that for the step the visual and collision geometry are the same ?

I didn't configure ODE parameters, it's the default one. I display the collision over the visual as orange overlay.
