I have tried many different methods with no results and now I am asking this kind community.

I have created an URDF file in a package located inside catkin_ws catkin_ws/src/farmbot_fyp/urdf/farmbot_urdf

and I would like to launch it in rviz, I have tried using the launch files from multiple sources but it did not work, HELP. I will just want to launch it without depending on the urdf_tutorial display.launch

if you don't tell us what you've already tried - and if it didn't work, what happened instead - we cannot help you.

We're here to help, but always include enough information.

Try putting your display.launch here so we can give it a look.

Also, did you tried adding the robot model in the rviz window? You might be forgetting that. It looks something like this: image description

Click the button that says Add and then select Robot Model.
