Hello everyone!

I am really new in Gazebo, so I'd like to ask more experienced users. I created a world in Blender, that I would like to use in Gazebo. The world loads great in Gazebo (Gazebo 9), but I would like to add collision to it, but I dont know how to add it to a complex object. What are my options, how should I approach this.

I'm going to answer myself :) . The solution was pretty easy, just added the same .obj file under the collision parameter.

yup! if you do run into performance issues, it could be that your collision model is 'too complex', so it can be worth having a simplified (e.g. low polycount) collision model defined. This is more important if your simulation has a lot of collision interactions
