I am trying to load a .stl object created from blender into gazebo world, which looks like shown below.

The object, however, is not being loaded into the world, through the model editor - > custom. image description

Is there a way to fix this?

Maybe this [tutorial](http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=import_mesh&cat=build_robot) helps?

Gazebo can use a .stl file instead of .dae. Anyway the .dae (collada) format is prefered. If you follow the tutorial using the .stl file it should work. I don't know so much about the model editor, normaly I use the SDF file, so i can just immagine that the .stl file is not so much supported as collada... Did you try to export the mash into a collada format?
