Hi, I'm a newbie to ROS/Moveit. And I have a problem to properly import the 3D model into the system. The model is in the .stl format. After it is imported, the unit is wrong. As the result, the model is too small in the Moveit space.

I tried to find the unit parameter but to no avail. Could somebody help me with this supposedly simple and basic problem?

Everything in ROS is required/supposed/assumed to follow REP-103: Standard Units of Measure and Coordinate Conventions when it comes to things like units.

So in the case of dimensions, the units would be metres (see Units: Base Units).

Everywhere in ROS, so also in MoveIt.
