So I set up a simulation of a robotic arm in Webots. However, the collisions between the base_link and the ground_plane seems to cause Errors when the mesh of the base_link becomes more complicated than a simple shape.

At the moment I have solved it by simplifying the geometry of the base_link, but I was wondering if there was a more elegant solution. I know some other simulators have a form of fix_model or fix_base_link option to avoid having to calculate collision with the ground_plane for static objects. Does Webots have something similair?

Thanks in advance!!

Yes, usually for robotics arms, the base link is attached to the static environment as described in the first point of this answer.
