I am trying to run a python code that imports rospy and i want to run this code in blender so that the position details of the object that is currently loaded in blender will be published to a ROS topic and use that message to make ROS turtle mimic the movements of the blender object.

I'm not sure how extensive it is, but there is some integration available in MORSE: MORSE/Installation/ROS Installation Notes. Perhaps it could be of some use.

Note that those tutorials are very old, so things might not ..

I have got a solution from a friend and it worked well. ROS and Blender can be linked using a simple python socket-client program. what i made is, i wrote a python code with server for the ROS and a python code with client for the Blender then used the code for blender to send the desired data as string and at the server side i manipulated the received string and used the data i need.
