Why is the model "head" kept falling down through the another model "chassis"?

the code is here:

  <pose>0.090 0 0.16 0 0 0</pose>
  <joint name="head_joint" type="fixed">

my chassis code is:

        <link name='chassis'>
        <pose>0 0 .1 0 0 0</pose>

        <collision name='collision'>
              <size>0.2159 0.1524 0.10795</size>

        <visual name='visual'>
              <size>0.2159 0.1524 0.10795</size>

I don't get how it just go through the model. Did I used the wrong one or what? I linked head as a child with chassis as parent.

I wanted to attach head on the chassis firmly without letting it go through the chassis. Do you have any idea what to put?

I'm using Gazebo11

I no longer call other model. I added them in the same file and it's working now.

It's a glitch, apparently.

If you run gazebo --verbose, you might get an error message indicating what went wrong. My guess is the joint <child> needs to be a link, but you gave it the name of a model.

Thank you for your reply! Yeah, --verbose said there was no model exist. Not sure why, but it's whatever now since create the "head" within the same file worked.
