Is there any GUI based builder for URDF? [closed]

My question is, I am a novice in ROS. I find the URDF builder by way of manually entering x, y and z values cumbersome. Is there any GUI builder - drag and drop where we concentrate on building the robot model visually faster? Any pointers to links where they explain how to specify x,y and z values easier?

You can use solidworks or any other software for developing your Robot and then you can change this into URDF here is the link :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7X_p...

Thank you. Editing the URDF file manually each time and then running it is so time consuming. I found the following link, which allows at least a web based interface to quickly edit and model your robot.

Is there any tool like the link shown ?

Thanks. I understand the basics of URDF, what I find cumbersome is that the alignment of each of the links of the robots and links is time consuming and I am not getting any logic how to place for e.x, 1 box shape above another shape. If you know any tutorial which helps get a hang of it, let me kno
