Hi All

Can someone please tell how I would be able to send optional parameters from a .launch file to a .urdf.xarco file.

I have a gazebo model where I want to optionally send the material.

Eg. By default have material set to something specific in the xacro file, if "material" provided in .launch file - use it.

Note: My launch file has multiple instances of the same .urdf.xarco model.

I'm not 100% sure of the current state of things, but according to an earlier Q/A arguments work, but setting default values for arguments does not (so if you use an argument you always have to set it).
