Is it possible to manage collision scene (selective collision)

Hi everyone,

I'm building a robot using a sophisticated imported STL mesh. The multibody model assembly in gazebo might have some interferences. So I would like to deactivate the collision between those body parts while keeping the collision with the environment.

Any suggestion or insight for this problem ???

By default, contacts between bodies within the same model are ignored. Do you want finer grained control over the collisions within a model?

To better explain my question i will rephrase. In other dynamic simulation tools you can activate/deactivate contact between any two bodies in the world. (e.g I want to a activate contact between sprocket and tracks for tracked vehicle so it is a selective contact within the same model. or to choose some parts of the model to collide with specific other bodies in the environment and invisible in the same time to anything else). does this feature exist in gazebo ? Thank you Nate :)
