I am searching for a way to export a complete robot model (in the pose that is set by the robot state publisher or manually) to a single mesh file. So I want to give up the Kinematic description and just stitch all joints together in one mesh. If there is a C++ API call, I am also willing to modify my RViz Robot Plugin or something...

My current best guess is to use the "Phobos" ( https://github.com/rock-simulation/ph... ) Blender plugin.

Any ideas? Thanx!

What are you trying to eventually do?

I am working on www.gpu-voxels.org and as I currently do not have implemented URDF support, I still want to use my ROS robots. But I can only load single mesh files onto the GPU. So I want to define a nice robot pose in ROS and then export the robot as one piece.
