I want to do pick and place operation using a robot (for example PR2)in ros/gazebo. It requires point cloud processing in PCl to detect objects and position them. However, the environment with specific objects are real. How to create my own object models on a table top so that the simulated robot can work with those objects? Anyone can please help about how to do this?

you can model them in Blender for example, export them as collada files and then you can load them in gazebo. Take a look at this tutorial.

Cheers, Andrei
