How to simulate a Velodyne sensor?

How would you simulate a velodyne sensor or any other 3d laser sensor?

I've tried to use the block laser plugin combined with a horizontal+vertical ray sensor but it looks like the vertical tag is bugged in the 1.9 branch of gazebo. At least, when I put more than 3 samples in the vertical block It takes forever to load on my i7 computer. (I attached parts of my sdf to the question)

I was wondering if anybody has been able to simulate such a 3d laser sensor.

  <sensor name="velodyne" type="ray">
    <plugin name="laser_controller" filename="">

Thanks for sharing your solutions
