Is there a way to do this or am i stuck with manually setting these limits each time in the exporter tool?

I'm not sure whether the plugin can base the urdf limits on the limits of the mates, but as long as you save the export configuration after you've set it up, you should not need to re-set any of those limits again. Re-opening the exporter should pick up on the saved limits.

One thing I've been doing in the past is to write a simple Python script that updates the joint limits in the urdf based on a text file. This makes it very easy to update them, without needing to redo the export in SolidWorks everytime you change something.
