Known Issues


  1. The grid in the viewport is drawn as an overlay ontop of the scene geometry and does not clip through it.

  2. If running Omniverse Isaac Sim headless connected via the remote client and you exit on shutdown the following error can occur, it can be ignored:

    [ext: omni.physx] shutdown
    Fatal Python error: Segmentation fault
    Thread 0x00007f46f8faa740 (most recent call first):
    File "..._build/target-deps/kit_sdk_release/_build/linux-x86_64/release/extsPhysics/omni.physx/omni/physx/scripts/", line 30 in on_shutdown
    File "..._build/target-deps/kit_sdk_release/_build/linux-x86_64/release/plugins/bindings-python/omni/ext/impl/", line 225 in shutdown_all

    File "..._build/target-deps/kit_sdk_release/_build/linux-x86_64/release", line 3 in <module>
  3. When running in windowed container, the following errors may be ignored and the app will continue to run after waiting for awhile:

    ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement psutil (from versions: none)
    ERROR: No matching distribution found for psutil
    WARNING: Retrying (Retry(total=4, connect=None, read=None, redirect=None, status=None)) after connection broken by 'NewConnectionError('<pip._vendor.urllib3.connection.VerifiedHTTPSConnection object at 0x7fcdcc284dd8>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno -3] Temporary failure in name resolution',)': /simple/psutil/``
  4. If exiting standalone python scripts with Ctrl-C, it may need to be done twice to exit.

  5. If Nucleus is not working on Docker, see Manually Installing Nucleus in a Container

  6. If more than one asset in URDF contains the same material name, only one material will be created, regardless if the parameters in the material are different (e.g two meshes have materials with the name “material”, one is blue and the other is red. both meshes will be either red or blue.). This also applies for textured materials.

  7. MJCF importer does not show the built-in bookmark in the file picker dialog. The bookmark is still available in the content pane and can be copy-pasted into the file picker dialog.

  8. If you see a black screen when running on Windows, use the --vulkan command-line argument during startup

  9. Debug Visualizations are not present in fisheye lens cameras that are not pinhole because that feature is not implemented.

  10. Assigning a viewport resolution that exceeds the available VRAM will result in the application throwing ERROR_OUT_OF_DEVICE_MEMORY errors. Subsequently, reducing the resolution to a smaller value may lead to a crash.

  11. When using World or SimulationContext from omni.isaac.core with OmniGraph, make sure the graphs are created before the World or SimulationContext are initialized.

  12. Using replicator’s rep.new_layer() functionality, which creates a new layer in which to place and randomize assets, may lead to issues in simulation scenarios where these assets are used. In such cases the use of rep.new_layer() can be omitted.

  13. When running through python, selecting physics objects and then another object on screen may result in one or more omni.kit.manupulator errors. This error is non-detrimental to the code execution and may be safely ignored.

  14. Dragging and dropping an asset with default values in OmniGraph nodes should be saved with scene and reloaded before hitting Play to make sure all values are correctly set.

  15. Error on exiting ./ from UI.

    [Error] [carb.livestream.plugin] nvstPushStreamData timeout for eye 0, stream (nil).
  16. Quadruped Robot is not able to move backward with NUM 2 or Down Arrow keys.

  17. Cortex samples with ROS synchronization may perform abnormaly and not be able to execute the task if the running FPS drops below 25 FPS.

  18. If randomized materials are not loaded on time for synthetic data generation the rt_subframes should be set to be at least 2.

  19. Some grippers with parallel mechanism (i.e. Robotiq 2F-85 and 2F-C2) have links that do not move with rest of the gripper.

  20. Multiple Robot ROS2 Navigation tutorial has high CPU usage. If you observe instances of robots colliding or experiencing localization issues, it’s likely because the Nav2 stack is unable to properly synchronize with sensor data, resulting in missed controller commands.

  21. There can be many warnings and other messages when running Isaac Sim. The amount of log output can be reduced by using the following command line arguments

    --/log/level=error --/log/fileLogLevel=error --/log/outputStreamLevel=error
  22. Using Replicator to write to S3 buckets with the built-in backend in Windows may require setting the credentials in the environment variables instead of the aws config files. This is because of a possible path parsing error in boto3 on Windows.

  23. When using Replicator’s S3 backend throught the BackendDispatch (e.g. BasicWriter) both the DiskBackend and S3Backend are enabled, causing the data to be written to disk and to S3. To avoid this, overwrite the writer’s backend after initialization.

    writer = rep.WriterRegistry.get("BasicWriter")
        output_dir="_out_dir", s3_bucket="bucket_name", s3_region="us-east-1", s3_endpoint="https://s3.url", rgb=True
    # NOTE: add this part overwrite the backend (e.g. data will only be written to S3)
    s3_backend = rep.backends.get("S3Backend")
    s3_backend.initialize(bucket="bucket_name", key_prefix="_out_dir", region="us-east-1", endpoint_url="https://s3.url")
    writer._backend = s3_backend
  24. XR extensions do not work properly on windows

  1. The WebRTC Client on Firefox may appear to hang after a few seconds when clicking the Play button. Using the Google Chrome or Chromium browser is recommended.

  2. Isaac Sim may hang if a browser pop-up for logging into Nucleus is closed before completing the login. Force restart of Isaac Sim is required.

  3. Isaac Sim may hang if it is shutdown from the File -> Exit Fast (Experimental) menu when using livestreaming. Please force close Isaac Sim and the livestream client when this happens.

  4. The Omniverse Streaming Client may hang after Isaac Sim exits with the File -> Exit menu. Please force close the Omniverse Streaming Client when this happens.


  1. Using RTX Lidar and a physics scene with GPU Dynamics enabled can lead to a crash in some cases. Please disable GPU dynamics in the physics scene and set the broadphase type to MBP if you encounter this issue

  2. Docking windows in the isaac-sim UI when an RTX Lidars simulation is running will likely lead to a crash. Please pause the simulation before re-docking the window.
