Hi, I am following the tutorial about urdf. In example 08-xacro, I don't understand why when defining the xacro:macro for a link/visual tag, there are two origin tags before and after geometry tags.

    <origin xyz="0 0 0" rpy="${pi/2} 0 0" />
      <cylinder radius="${wheeldiam/2}" length="0.1"/>
    <material name="black"/>
    <origin xyz="0 0 0" rpy="0 0 0" />

Thank you very much for your help.

Having two origin tags does definitely not make any sense. This is wrong.

Can you link to the tutorial with this error? I didn't find it.
