hi, i want to implement this :

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
  <robot name="robot1" xmlns:xacro="http://ros.org/wiki/xacro">
   <xacro:arg name="robot" default="error"/>
   <xacro:include filename="robots/$(arg robot)_macro.xacro"/>
   <xacro:${arg robot} prefix="robot1_"/>
</robot>

this of course won't work cause ${arg robot} as xacro:name is not recognized.
Any way to implement this way? with the robot name as an argument?
Thanks

well, i have no idea if this could work, but for argument substitution you need regular braces, not curly ones, like you did in the include: $(arg robot). Have you tried with that?

The code you have written is not self explanatory, it is not obvious what you want to achieve here. In any case here is a ros answer with some discussion on passing arguments to xacro https://answers.ros.org/question/38956
