I am spawning urdf robot models in gazebo that include laser rangers, and it works (the sensor is working), but the laser rays are not displayed any more.

Any idea?

What does "it works" mean? How did you verify? Are there messages with ranges? If so, where are they not displayed (rviz?) and what does "any more" mean (in comparison to what was changed when it worked)? If rviz, do you see errors like "no transform for frame...", then post those: I suspect TF.

"it works" means that I am able to see the measurements in rviz, so the data is being published correctly. "any more" means that I was able to see the rays in the ROS electric version.

As announced by the developers in Sep 2012, all gazebo related questions should be asked on new gazebo specific QA community. Thank you for your cooperation!

Apologies that I close as "off-topic" although it's actually very related - there isn't more suitable label.
