So i have a robot that uses arms to do things. the arms are attached to motor models by a revolute joint. After showing the join location i noticed something odd.



lets say that the O is where i set my joint to be. the arm then will rotate around that point if i add force to it. This works fine for the first arm. The second arm has the exsact same setup. however gazebo shows its joint to be like this


O =================== --- --- ---

however its showing the wrong position it does rotate around the right point that i set in my sdf file. This does get confusing as I have about 20 joints which may or may not be showing the wrong position.

is there a fix for this or am i doing something wrong?

Could you post your SDF file? Also, what version of Gazebo are you using? There is a joint visualization fix in this [pull request](

It turns out that rebooting my OS fixed the issue. It basicly came down to that gazebo was drawing the joints on wrong positions.
