Actions: Export URDF from Solidworks according the guidelines. Entering to the URDF folder -> Meshes folder -> open one of the STL files in solidworks.

Problem: The link is "exploded" and the part are separated from each other. Looks the same when import to Gazebo.

Not all the link are exploding, some are fine.


Edit:

At the left side you can see the links and thier coordinates. At the right side you can see the STL files of the links when I open them from the URDF folder. Only the 3rd link is intact. the 2 first links are disoriented.

What is wrong?

First guess: not all parts have their origins where they should be.

It says I need 5 karma to upload a picture.

Where does the origins need to be?

To set the origins of each link, I used the coordinates of one of the parts in the link. Is'nt it right?

Meet the same problem. Seems like the coordinate in STL file set in the wrong place.

Are you using Solidworks lower than SP5 edition? I met the same problem when using Solidworks SP0. After updating my Solidworks the problem solved.
