Hi I have a robot model ( robotic arm ). I have uploaded the URDF to Moveit! and configured it and the resulted file is run in Rviz. It works fine a marker appears at the end effector position and when I move the marker the entire arm moves along with it. I want to implement the same without using Moveit! so that I get an interactive marker at the end effector position and when I drag it the arm should also move along with it. I tried this tutorial on interactive markers in Rviz but I could only get a marker at the desired position and when I move it only the marker moves the arm doesn't. Please help me.

You will need to post at least your URDF file to troubleshoot this.

I am using a standard urdf from ABB robotics. I have even tried with scara urdf

Then how is it a "custom robot"? Again, you will have to post the actual URDF file you are using and what you did to configure it exactly, or it will be hard to help you.
