I just updated my Groovy debian installation with the release that was posted today on ros-users and now collada meshes no longer appear in RViz. In particular, the TurtleBot is now basically invisible.

It looks to me like 1.9.28 is the latest release. What software is that version number (0.2.9) attached to?

So recently, collada scaling stuff has changed, see #603 and #618. Most likely, TurtleBot needs to be fixed because the scaling is incorrect.

Ooops. I quoted the version for ros-groovy-rqt-rviz instead of ros-groovy-rviz. Yes, 1.9.28 is what I meant.

Actually, it doesn't look like scaling, but it is pretty messed up on my machine as well (whole robot is just a few speckles of gray and white scattered around)

Yeah, that's what I see too.

It might be a scaling issue after all. I have my own copy of the original TurtleBot meshes and applying the following scales to the meshes fixed the problem:

kinect: 100
create_body: 100
plate_0: 100
plate_1: 100
plate_2: 100

I can't promise that my older meshes are the same as in the newest turtlebot_description package.

Oh well, I was worried already that this would cause trouble. We didn't test this with the turtlebot meshes, sorry.

I have created pull requests to fix the scaling problems for turtlebot 1 (turtlebot 2's meshes have already been updated recently).

Anyway, I believe such a major change shouldn't have been pushed to public, since it will probably break a lot of visualisations. Maybe next time address such a change on ros-users first. Then the community can decide and at the same time will be aware of it.

Yeah, we should probably have put this off for release in Hydro. I posted an announcement to ros-users, hopefully it doesn't break too much stuff out there.
