Hello, A few days ago I switched from fuerte to groovy. The shipped gazebo version at this time was 1.2.5 . Scince everything was working fine (simulating robots, spawning models, etc.) I decided to install groovy on 2 other machines. On those machines simulator gazebo has version 1.3.0 and it is not possible to spawn any models via "rosrun gazebo spawn_model ...". When using files with SDF version 1.3 I always get the following error:

[ERROR] [1359494067.230314246]: GazeboRosApiPlugin SpawnModel Failure: input xml format not recognized

I've made some experiments with really simple models and even older sdf versions. Nothing seems to work here. Any suggestions why this not working anymore?

Best regards,

Tobi

How to spawn a model:

$ gzfactory spawn -f <sdf_file>

There are bunch of other options:

$ gzfactory -h

I get the feeling that most of the command line tools for spawning models are broken. The preferred way to launch SDFs is by putting models in the appropriate directory. Then they appear in the list of insertable models in Gazebo. The instructions are here.
