Hello, I am taking the basics of ROS in 5 days (C++) with hopes to simulate Nexus 3WD omni-directional robot on gazebo. I have the urdf file working fine. Is it possible to use any of the packages already written for another ground vehicle (i.e. turtle bot) for my robot? If you have another advice or guidelines to get this done, please enlighten me because I am in a dire need for it. Thank you! Best Regards,

Unfortunately it's quite hard to tell you how to do it for ANY robot, since each of them has its own specific attributes.

But, if you are going to use turtlebot as example, you can start implementing the differential_drive plugin for ROS + Gazebo to make your robot "drivable".

Other plugins shall be used for the sensors, you have to see your robot's necessities and pick one by one.

Hope it can help you.
