Could someone please help me with the following question. Idk what I'm missing here, but no fixes discussed on previous posts seem to work for me.

PS: If someone who has a working plugin could help me out with extracting the URDF, I can send you my model. I'm on a clock for this project. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I've been through the same struggle and couldn't fix the problem. If you need to get it done, maybe you can consider it doing yourself without the plugin. You can save your model as stl from SolidWorks (make sure you set the resolution as you want it to be and for me, saving each part individually in an assembly saved me a lot of hassle I experienced before) and then maybe use blender to export it as dae file (just make sure of the orientation)

Apparently, this was a solidworks_urdf_exporter issue that was fixed in PR #72.
