Building a world

This tutorial is based off of the tutorial from this link.


1. Create a working directory

$ mkdir ~/build_world_tutorial; cd ~/build_world_tutorial

2. Start gazebo (should just display ground plane, like the following)

$ gazebo


Add Object

You can either add simple shapes which are located above the world screen or models which are located in the 'inset' tab next to 'world' tab.

Saving and Loading World

A world can be saved under the file menu. File --> Save As --> insertWorldNameHere.sdf

The world can now be loaded on terminal:

$ gazebo insertWorldNameHere.sdf
