When i am importing 3d cad model of base (40 cm*40cm),it occupies whole grid.So my question is that should we scale down the size of object or should increase the plane cell count in grid option.

thank you

Hello @vishrutsingh,

In the visual/collision part of the Robot URDF, you have to scale the mesh size, just like below:

< geometry>
  < mesh filename="package://some_pkg/some_description/mesh.stl" scale="0.001 0.001 0.001"/>
< /geometry>

Just pay attention to the scale value, it may differ from your custom mesh file.
