Hi, I'm using turtlebot2 and groovy. I converted turtlebot.urdf.xacro to turtlebot.urdf, and then rviz it by "roslaunch urdf_tutorial display.launch...". But there are many problems in rviz outcomes. For example, "Unknown robot element 'turtlebot_sim_laser", "[ERROR]...Could not load resource [package://turtlebot_description/meshes/create_body.dae]...", and I cannot see body and plate of turtlebot, but only kabuki, two wheels. I don't know whether it is comes from my fault. I don't if anybody have right turtlebot.urdf model? Without this I cannot mount my pincher arm on it(I actually need a arm-mounted-turtlebot's .urdf file which can be used to generate TF info). Thanks guys!

Does the resource that it cannot find actually exist?

Yep! There were loading problems, though I can open the rviz.

To execute roslaunch urdf_tutorial display.launch, robot model is needed because display.launch calls "model". Which model did you choose? I guess that it is something wrong in a description of the model. and There isn't a /meshes/create_body.dae in my turtlebot_description.
