Re: URDF Workbench, robotics

Sadly not much, have been working on importing .stl or .obj files as links (structure, not things you click) and to do an "manual" assembly of the Inmoov hand. like the one in my video but with more links/jonts. This is to verify that the concept holds and will highlight issues i might have overseen...

Re: URDF Workbench, robotics

Nice Progress! Just want to note that the new Part object in 0.17 development is not yet fixed and may change. For example nesting Parts currently breaks the sketcher. It is furthermore intended that Parts cannot hold other Parts and that for nesting stuff other "assembly objects" will be introduce...

Re: URDF Workbench, robotics

Of cause! :D thank you! so i mixed up part and body.

part > body > *mesh/shape* ex. box, pad etc..

One assembly can have several parts
One part can have several bodies
One body can only have one "mesh/shape"

I want to create several "shapes" inside a body that does not intersect, is it possible? "HowTo Replicate: create a sphere then add a disc to a body with "additive part" dialog, s...

Re: URDF Workbench, robotics

Ah, cool, had missed phobos! that will probably play well with MORSE https://www.openrobots.org/morse/doc/latest/what_is_morse.html I will continue to work on my workbench as i want to be able to export / test the model in the same tool as i make the models. I know its possible to use blender as a C...

URDF Workbench, robotics

Hello i am working on some robotics projects and i do my modeling in FreeCAD. I am playing around with the idea of a URDF workbench, I will be a kind of a simple subset of a assembly workbench. I would like to build the URDF model in 3 steps, 1. create a link (http://wiki.ros.org/urdf/XML/link) Eith...
