When I am trying to build my own robot according to this link:

It appears to me some errors:

seec@ubuntu:~$ rosmake urdfdom_model [ rosmake ] rosmake starting...
[ rosmake ] Packages requested are: ['urdfdom_model']
[ rosmake ] Logging to directory /home/seec/.ros/rosmake/rosmake_output-20130722-140052 [ rosmake ] Expanded args ['urdfdom_model'] to: []
[ rosmake ] WARNING: The following args could not be parsed as stacks or packages: ['urdfdom_model'] [ rosmake ] ERROR: No arguments could be parsed into valid package or stack names. seec@ubuntu:~$ rosrun urdfdom_model check_urdf my_robot.urdf [rospack] Error: stack/package urdfdom_model not found

Is there some special place to save in it "my_robot.urdf" this .urdf file? I do not know what is the issue?

Both rosmake and rosrun told you the same error. You don't have the package urdfdom_model. I believe some of the confusion has to do with the renaming of some of the urdf packages from Fuerte to Groovy. I'm presuming you are using Fuerte, so try this command instead:

rosrun urdf_parser check_urdf my_urdf.xml

EDIT I just updated the wiki page you linked to try and make this a bit more clear.
