I used the simulation with kinect and a robot in Gazebo simulator, but I need the files with the point cloud (range image) that the kinect generates in the 3d world. So, how I cant get this files from de sensor in simulation? ... thanks for the answers...

Hey Claudia! So I'm working on a project similar to yours, except I'm using the Warehouse Planner as my simulator. So far I can launch the simulator (plan cool movements) and I've been able to launch openni_launch and get Kinect data into Rviz with the simulation.

But you need a transformation from your Kinect rgb,depth,etc frame to your robot's fixed frame!
