I have been trying to create a collada file so that later i can create a ikfast plugin. However I can't for the life of me get the collada_urdf tool to work. It generally does one of two things:

Either complete with and error but for some reason it says it is successful however there is no file generated in the folder.

I/O error : No such file or directory
I/O error : No such file or directory
error : xmlNewTextWriterFilename : cannot open uri

Document successfully written to katana_450_6m90a.dae

or, it basically hangs and does nothing, but blink back at me :)

Has anyone else come across something like this, and perhaps found a solution, or know of another way to go about creating the collada file using a URDF.

Any help is appreciated

As memory serves: rosrun collada_urdf urdf_to_collada <input-urdf> <output.dae> with the appropriate files

Hi, Sorry to say but I've still had no luck, but I have been on a bit of a hiatus this past few months so might not be in the loop.
