Hi Grace,
For cturtle and on, you should be able to use a textured COLLADA mesh (mesh
only, no kinematics) inside your urdf for gazebo or rviz.  For reference,
take a look at the COLLADA mesh (
which refers to a texture map
the same directory.  These mesh files are referred to by thegripper
urdf xacro module<https://code.ros.org/svn/wg-ros-pkg/stacks/pr2_common/tags/cturtle/pr2_description/urdf/gripper_v0/gripper.urdf.xacro>.
If you have a sample urdf working, it will be much appreciated if you can
share your experience setting it up.
