i have a .urdf file of a mogel of a robot. I want to use it in gazebo abd ros? I am running on ubuntu 16.04, ros kinetic and gazebo7.

i do not want to build a new model in gazebo, rather i want to use the existing .urdf file in the gazebo simulation through ROS.

Help. I am a novice in ROS, gazebo and ubuntu.

Here is tutorial on how to work with gazebo using roslaunch command. I would recommend to read the whole thing. What you're looking for right now is in section Using roslaunch to Spawn URDF Robots.
