Hi everyone,

I'm trying to import a simple car wheel 'dae' file although when I launch it, nothing appears on RViz, and in my terminal I get the FileNotFoundException error. I'm following this convention "package://packagename/path," which I found from Not sure what file path I should put down for it to find it.

I get the following error when I run this:

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

        <mesh filename="package://agile_bot/meshes/Sport_tire_245_40.dae" scale="1 1 1"/>

Probably, you forgot to edit the file in order to install the mesh files in the install directory of the package. If you use package for finding the mesh file, then ROS look inside the install directory and not in the source (src) directory, where you store your code.
