Hello Everyone

I have a solidworks model from a mechanism which has parallel joints. I need to convert it to .dae format to open it in Openrave. I searched everywhere but I couldn't find any answers. I tried URDF exporter for solidworks and urdf to dae converter by ROS. But apparently, URDF can not have parallel mechanisms in it. Can anyone help me for doing this conversion?

Thank You

URDF only support linear chains of joints. You can manually add mimic joints in ros to create the correct movement manually though. However these won't work in Gazebo.
