Because the Interaction Cursor is not a default inclusion in RViz, there should have been a link included in the question: interaction_cursor_rviz package.

Beyond that, it's not entirely clear what you're asking -- the sphere is the cursor. Section 3.1 of the above link provides the controls.

Hi,

Thank you for your answers. Actually, i know that we cannot interact with markers in RVIZ in 3D (they are just for display). For that i have created a node that allows me to move this sphere with my keyboard. But, right now i want to change my method, i want to interact with this sphere with a phantom omni device. I did a research and i found a node labeled omni_im which allows to interact with markers while using the 3D cursor in RVIZ. This node, from what I understood, allows to manipulate the 3D cursor as well as the 3D interactions with markers. Here is a link of a demonstration of the omni_im node that i found:

I did not try it yet, so may be my understanding is not correct, in that case please correct me.

Thanks.

These are two different kinds of visualization_msgs:

  1. Rviz markers such as the sphere are only for display purposes. You cannot interact with them in 3D. http://wiki.ros.org/rviz/DisplayTypes...

  2. Interactive markers can be manipulated in 3D and this is what you're looking for. http://wiki.ros.org/rviz/DisplayTypes...
