This is probably more a Gazebo question (and thus more suited for, but let's see whether someone here has a suggestion.

Hm. cross-posting is not really nice.

Could you at least post the link to your GazeboSim Answers question?

you can use "Block Laser" plugin, but last time I used it it was pretty resource hungry.
